Why OB/GYN?: We all love it when pregnancy, labor and delivery all happen smoothly and naturally. That is how we would like it, but frequently, unpredictably and suddenly, things can turn sour and be dangerous to mother and baby. Obstetricians, neonatologists and perinatologists are the women and men trained for those situations. Most midwives have or are required to have obstetricians within easy reach.
