Choosing where to deliver

Delivering a baby is a big deal! One of the first things you have to consider is where you’ll deliver your baby. Common options include a hospital or birthing center. Some people may even choose to deliver their baby at home. No matter where you choose to have your baby, it’s important to speak to your healthcare provider and understand the pros and cons of each option. Your situation will play a role in what is best for you. If your delivery has many risks, your healthcare provider may prefer to have you in a facility with the appropriate resources to take quick action if there are complications. 

Things you’ll want to consider as you choose where to deliver your baby include:

  • The reputation of the facility
  • The type of delivery you want
  • The type of care team you want
  • The amount of flexibility you want during labor and delivery
  • The facilities where your healthcare provider deliver
  • Available pain management options, if preferred
  • Postpartum and neonatal care options
