What type of physician?

During the early pregnancy stage you will pick out your care provider. This may sound like a simple process, but you actually want to be particular about who you chose and what type of practice they run. If you want to be really prepared walk into the doctors office with a list of questions, as listed below:

How long have you been in practice?
How many twins have you delivered?
Have you had any twins death related to delivery?
Do you normally recommend bed rest at an early date or are you more lenient?
Are you board certified?
What is your cesarean section rate? How many c sections do you do a month?
How busy is your practice? How many deliveries do you do a month?
How long do I have to wait for an appointment?
What testing do you do?
Do you deal with high risk pregnancies?
Who will be delivering me?
Where will I be delivered?
How are the support staff?
What insurance do you accept?

After you have chosen a doctor, you will have different questions. Always remember to write them down so that you can ask at the next visit. Doctors should always be willing to answer any questions.
