10 not-true things people believe about giving birth

Your doctor will be there to deliver your baby

Depending on how your obstetrician’s practice is set up, your doctor may not be the one to help deliver your baby.

Not all cases are the same and you may not give birth with the doctor you know and love assisting you. Depending on how your obstetrician’s practice runs and how many doctors are in the practice, you may have one of the doctors you are less familiar with there during your delivery. With just one doctor in the practice, they you will most likely know who is going to help deliver your baby. If who is there with you on your big day worries you, make sure to ask when choosing an OB/GYN.
