Dr. Darney explains how a woman can ensure she receives the best gynecological care during pregnancy.
Well she should develop a birth plan with her partner and other members of her family so that she knows what she would like to get out of the process of prenatal care and delivery, that’s the first step. And then she should ask her obstetrician or her midwife if that person is comfortable with the type of care she wants.
