What does ideal maternity care look like?

Would you know it when you saw it?  What if there was a practice in Athens that looked like this:

  • Medical care is provided by a Doctor / Midwife team.
  • Every client takes a childbirth education class, whether it is a in-depth class for new parents or a refresher class for those with a previous experience.
  • Everyone sees a counselor or social worker at least once during prenatal care and again during the postpartum period.
  • Group prenatal care
