Choosing a Doctor or Midwife
If you are pregnant, you might be facing the dilemma of choosing a doctor or a midwife to take care of your prenatal care and delivery. There are several factors that go into choosing a doctor or a midwife including expectations of delivery, cost and preexisting medical conditions.
Midwife Birth
Many pregnant women are turning to the option of having a midwife birth at home instead of through a medical professional in a hospital as the result of rising health care costs. Midwife birth options are becoming more common place as some women look to save money and give birth in their own home.
Braxton Hicks
For those who are new to pregnancy or have been pregnant before, Braxton Hicks contractions can be some of the most frustrating contractions to experience during pregnancy. However, many pregnant women don't experience Braxton Hicks contractions at all.
APGAR Testing
Apgar testing is the first and quick assessment of the overall health and well-being of a newborn baby. The Apgar testing system was first implemented in the 1950's by an obstetric anesthesiologist, Virginia Apgar. Apgar testing is now commonly used to assess newborn babies in their first few minutes after birth.
Natural Family Planning (NFP)
Natural Family Planning is considered a highly effective method of birth control that involves an active approach at knowing the woman's most fertile times by dissecting fertile signals regarding fertility and ovulation. Natural Family Planning is often associated with the charting method of birth control, which doesn't carry the best reputation for effectiveness.
