Choosing Your Birth Team and Location

This video examines birth location choices and choices for your birth team.

Birth Locations:

  • Hospital
  • Free Standing Birth Center

Remember that each setting has its own unique set of risks and benefits. No provider or setting can guarantee you of a good outcome. You have to weigh each set of risks and benefits and decide which set feels right for you and your family.

Birth Team:

  • OB/GYN
  • Certified Professional Midwife
  • Certified Nurse Midwife
  • Doula (non medical support)

Things to remember when choosing a provider:

  • Ask questions and discuss what is important to you. Find a provider that listens and cares about your questions and wishes
  • Follow your gut! If you are not feeling comfortable with your provider, it’s never too late to switch.
  • Choose a provider who specializes in the type of birth you seek.
