Because pregnancy and delivery is determined by general health, social surroundings, previous reproductive decisions, and more, this all-encompassing care method is often better suited to healthy, happy birthing experiences. Similar to OB/GYNs, FP doctors hold prenatal appointments and assist deliveries in a hospital. It’s likely they will spend more time getting to know you and your family, and are guaranteed (unlike OB/GYNs) to be completely present at your delivery. They don’t personally offer elective C-sections meaning that their rate of surgery is much lower than the national average and their rate of healthy birth outcomes is higher.
