Dear Parents and Parents-to-be,
We are a Brazilian couple expecting a baby for the end of October.
We will arrive in Boston this weekend. My husband will be a post-doc in the Physics Department at Harvard. I started my pre-natal in Switzerland, where I lived for the past 5 years. Now I´m looking for an Obstetrician in Cambridge/Boston to go on with the pre-natal and to follow us until the delivery in about 2.5 - 3 months.
We would highly appreciate if someone could recommend a good Obstetrician in the area. Suggestions on hospitals/maternity centers would also be very helpful.
We would also like to know more about how baby delivery really works in the US. Some of our questions are: is the delivery done by the obstetrician or midwives ? Can one chose the obstetrician or midwife who will take care of the delivery (we will have the Harvard Affiliate Health Insurance Plan) ?
Many thanks in advance for any suggestion,
Marina and Andre.
