Hope you have a wonderful appointment, Beth!
You're wise to collect so many good questions.
If he/she doesn't have time to answer all your questions as fully as you'd like, you can make an appointment specifically just to interview the Dr. Setting up an official interview appointment is your right. As you well know, choosing your care provider is one of the most important decisions in your pregnancy AND also can weigh upon your future child bearing as well. Every Dr. has a way that they like doing things that might include inducing "large" babies (and what's the definition of large?), they might do episiotomies to shave a little time off of labor (
in my book), they might be flexible about continous fetal monitoring, they might be used to 90% of their patients getting epidurals. It's just a matter of finding a provider that meets your needs and helps you have the birth that you want.
Just because you have your first appointment with this practice, doesn't mean you have to stick with them if they don't seem absolutely perfect.
That said, I hope they are!
