To determine which type of obstetric care will work best in your situation, you need to do your research and ask a lot of questions. Ask family, friends or colleagues who have recently had a baby about their prenatal care. Do they recommend a practitioner or a clinic? If you do decide to try a group obstetric practice, ask questions about: How many practitioners are in the group? How are the responsibilities for your care divided? Will you see the same doctor throughout your pregnancy? Who will deliver the baby if your primary care provider is unavailable? Is there a 24 hour contact person? How many babies do they deliver in a year?
When you have all your questions answered, then you can make an informed decision that suits you.
