Step Two…Huddle

We suggest that early on in your pregnancy you bring a copy to your doctor, together you can work on compromises and solutions. You do not want to be surprised on the day you give birth that you and your doctor do not agree. This creates conflict and good old-fashioned negativity, which on the happiest day of your life, is completely unnecessary and avoidable. This can happen weather you are planning a natural or medicated birth.
