Our resident OBGYN Dr. Chris Stroud answers questions, including the ones you didn’t know you had, about birth options and birth plans. He explains when a hospital birth might be best for mother and/or baby, the advantages of free-standing birth centers, natural labor and pain management options, water birth, homebirth, midwives, doulas, and more.

Plus, hear the amazing (and hilarious) story of a married couple – two physicians – who had an unplanned car birth last Thanksgiving.
