No matter if you have a midwife, family physician, or an obstetrician providing your care during pregnancy the ways to make each prenatal count are the same. Take notes: In the time between prenatals make notes of your questions when you think of them. You will forget all the different questions if you don't write them down. Also, right before each visit brainstorm for a couple minutes to see if you can think of anything else. Never cheat: Just like on tests cheating your care provider won't do you any good. If you are having trouble smoking your provider needs to know. If you are eating all white bread and cheese and scorning veggies they need to know. Lying could potentially harm your health and your baby's health. Be part of a crowd: Well, not a crowd exactly but try to make sure your partner gets to some appointments with you. If you think it would make you more comfortable take your mom or best friend. Ace the finals: In this case your final is going to be the birth of your little one. If you can't count on the care provider you have to help you do this drop them like there's no tomorrow. If they rush you, fail to answer questions, or ever make you feel bad for no apparent reason find someone to help you prep for success. Sometimes personalities just plain don't mesh and while that's no-one's fault you should be with someone you do enjoy for such a momentous event.
