Choosing a Healthcare Provider
Our UnityPoint Health - Grinnell OB providers partner closely with our maternity services and primary care teams. Together, we support you through this important health journey. It's important to note if you use an OBGYN provider for your delivery, you will also need to select a primary care provider for your baby's care.
Tips to Help You Get Started:
- Make a list of candidates from people you trust - your relatives, friends, neighbors and co-workers and your primary care/family medicine healthcare provider.
- Find a provider who is in your health insurance network to avoid unexpected costs.
- Consider the provider's personality:
Do they treat you as a partner in care decisions?
- Are they patient and willing to explain things carefully?
- Would they be supportive if you requested a second opinion?
- Are the provider's age and gender important factors to you?
- Are you comfortable asking questions and do you feel like you're being heard?
Additionally it's good to consider if the provider's clinic location will impact your decision. OB providers from UnityPoint Health - Grinnell's Family Practice Clinic and Obstetrics and Gynecology Clinic provide OB outreach at the Montezuma Medical Clinic and Marshalltown Multi-Specialty Clinic.
