Find an OB/GYN
Finding an OB/GYN who meets your needs is a personal decision, but it is one of the most important decisions you can make concerning health care. When you and your doctor are a good match, you're more likely to have mutual trust, which leads to quality care.
The first step in choosing an OB/GYN is to check his or her qualifications. Physicians should be board certified or board eligible, which means they have passed an extensive written and oral exam and have the knowledge required to practice in their specialty.
Another important factor in choosing a physician is convenience. It's usually best to choose a doctor close to your home or place of work. This is especially important during pregnancy, as you will visit your doctor at least monthly during your pregnancy and more frequently as your due date nears.
