Checklist: Must-ask medical questions for your first check-up

___ Where do you deliver?

___ What's the best way to reach you if I have an urgent question -- or in an emergency?

___ Will you actually deliver my baby?

___ Are there other doctors or associates who I'll be seeing too?

___ Are my meds safe? How about my skin-care regimen? Even the occasional Echinacea tablet? Brown bag everything -- even the stuff you use on occasion -- and bring them all to your appointment so you won't forget to mention any.

___ Will my or my partner's family histories affect my pregnancy or baby in any way?

___ What tests or screenings will I need -- and when will they happen?
