Prioritize Range Of Service
Ensure Proper Certification
This may seem like a given, but unfortunately, not all women’s health care facilities are created equal when it comes to certification, experience, and education. This makes it essential for you to do some homework as an informed patient to ensure proper board certification.
“Choosing an obstetrician that is board certified is essential. The patient should always ask to see the board certification and research a bit before choosing a doctor. Many certified obstetricians will also be a member of the Fellow of the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists. (This is the FACOG after their name.) In the case of midwives, choose a certified nurse midwife (CNM),” says BabyMed.
Ultimately, understanding exactly what to look for when researching women’s health care facilities is the key to choosing a professional that truly has all of their patients’ best interests in mind.
