New Delhi: Choosing a good gynaecologist is very important for a pregnant woman. A good doctor helps you deliver your baby smoothly and let you experience comfortable birthing. Often women end up having the worst gynaecologist during their pregnancy and delivery. So, one should always ask certain questions before finalising one.

Here are some questions which you should ask your gynaecologist:

What kind of complications often leads to a C-section?

A normal delivery or C-section? Such questions might come in the mind of many women during their pregnancy. So, one needs to twist the question to know if your doctor is in support of normal delivery or not.

Do you support breastfeeding?

We all know the benefits of breastfeeding and breast crawl right after birth. But some doctors might not support it, if one undergoes C-section. So, try to find out whether your doctor is in support of the same.

Are you present during labour and delivery?

You don’t need your doctor during the time of labour but it is good if she/he believes in checking on her/his patient instead of leaving it fully to inexperienced staff.

What kind of pain management options are available?

Don't forget to discuss the important aspect of labour. Many hospitals are equipped with facilities like an epidural, some prefer to offer hypnobirthing or other medications to ease the pains. So, try to know what options you have so that you can choose your method of pain management effectively.
