I’m sure you can tell by now that my upcoming delivery day is weighing heavily on my mind. Especially since I thought it would be last week and it shows zero signs of arriving any day soon. But having this extra time has given me the chance to be a little more clearheaded with what I expect from my birth experience. I get to take my birth plan from no epidural, no MIL to a more well planned one, that will still absolutely include those two items.
And in trying to plan out my birth experience, as much as any birth experience can ever really be planned, I’ve realized that there are some critical questions that women need to be asking their OBs. No one ever really gave me suggestions about what to ask, so there have been times where I’ve either had nothing to ask my OB or I’ve bombarded her with 20 completely random questions.
While arguably there are about a million more questions that you should ask your OB, these 10 questions are relatively important ones to clarify before you go into labor. If you are lucky enough to ever go into labor because some of us will just be pregnant forever it seems.
I know that there are plenty of other questions that need to be asked, so what do you feel are the other most important questions to ask your OB before your delivery day?
