IT'S NEVER TOO EARLY TO GET THE CONVERSATION STARTED!

Questions to Ask

At Mother's Milk for Michigan Infants, we want you to be as informed as possible as you navigate your pregnancy journey.  We have created questions to prompt conversation between you and your OB prior to the birth of your baby. 

We created some questions to spark conversation between you and your OB, prior to delivery. No pressure to ask every question, but these can be used as a guide to making sure you are well-informed prior to giving birth.
