What things should I ask my OB at my first visit? I have a small list but just want to make sure I dont leave out anything important. Thanks for any replies!

If you are interested in natural childbirth, ask if they are familiar with that and whether they support it (you'd be surprised how many don't!). Ask what their rate of Caesareans/inductions is. If you plan on having others at the birth (mom, friend, etc.), ask how they feel about that. It is most important to make sure that you are being treated by someone who is sympathetic to the way YOU want things done and who are willing to listen to YOUR desires, even if you change your mind (or circ_mstances change) at the birth. If not, find another OB now!

if anything seems unusual about your pregnancy, ask about it. Dont think you can ask a question that they have never heard or a stupid question. They hear it all. feel free to ask questions here if you are in between visits too
