Questions to Ask Your OB or Midwife

  1. I am planning to breastfeed my baby.  What should I know about when to call you?
  2. Should I use the emergency on-call number for these issues or should I call during office hours?
  3. Do you have any teaching sheets you can provide me with this information?
  4. If I develop yeast, plugged ducts, or mastitis, do you feel as if your office is able to provide me adequate breastfeeding support to make sure I am doing everything I can to prevent the problem from happening again and to maintain my exclusive breastfeeding relationship?
  5. Do you work with an IBCLC? If so, can you please provide me with her contact information so I can meet her before I have my baby?
  6. Can you suggest any breastfeeding support groups for me to attend?
