Topic: Choosing a Care Provider
Each person is different and that’s why having different options for who to choose as your primary care provider for pregnancy is great! But sometimes it can be difficult to find updated or accurate information about all of your options. In this session we will discuss the differences between midwives, obstetricians, and family doctors and discuss standard questions to ask when interviewing these providers to determine which provider is right for you. Even if you already have a current doctor or midwife, this meetup may be of interest to know about all the options available for you and your partner. The session will end with open discussion so please feel free to bring your questions!
