If you’re searching for an OB/GYN, midwife, doula, or lactation consultant, there’s no shortage of qualified professionals in the NYC area. Start by asking trusted friends for recommendations, but don’t take their advice as the last word. Follow your instincts. Use online resources or one of your childbirth reference books to really understand the role of each provider, taking note of questions to ask when interviewing health care providers you’re interested in working with.
