Choosing Wisely®
Why scheduling early delivery of your baby is not a good idea

It may be better to let nature take its course when it comes to inducing labor before 39 weeks. Risk for postpartum depression increases and babies delivered before 39 weeks by C-section may have breathing and feeding problems.

Sometimes it may be necessary to induce labor before 39 weeks to ensure the health and safety of both mom and baby if there are complications with the pregnancy.

Ways to Save

The doctor you choose determines which hospitals you may use for your delivery. You will want to check on pricing for major items like the obstetrician, hospital or birthing center, anesthesiologist, and pediatrician, as early as possible if the cost of delivery is an important consideration.

Vaginal deliveries are typically less expensive than Cesarean sections. Often, once a woman has had a Cesarean delivery, physicians offer to deliver future babies by Cesarean. However, many physicians will now offer or even recommend a vaginal delivery for future pregnancies as long as there are no medical reasons requiring a Cesarean. This is referred to as “Vaginal Birth After Cesarean,” or VBAC. If interested, ask your physician if this is an appropriate option for you.
