Birth Care Providers

Choosing the right birth care provider can influence an entire pregnancy, including where the birth takes place (at home, in a hospital, at a birthing center) and the overall experience of labor and birth. A birth care provider may be a physician (obstetrician, OBGYN, maternal-fetal medicine specialist, family medicine specialist), a nurse (nurse-practitioner, certified nurse-midwife), a midwife, or a doula.
