Interview with High-Risk Doctor: Nate Fox
Dr. Nate Fox, a Maternal-Fetal Medicine (aka High-Risk) doctor, joins us to discuss how passionate he is about what he does as well and answers some questions from YOU! We hope you'll enjoy listening to a doctor who clearly respects women and the process of birth, and that you will use his example and the information he shares as information in finding the right provider for you.
Here are some of the questions that were answered in this interview:
- How did you get involved in birth work? What made you decide to specialize in high-risk?
- What is your overall birth philosophy?
- What does a high-risk doctor do? Who do you see/most common diagnosis you deal with? Twins? Gestational Diabetes? Etc.
- What do you do when someone comes to you late in pregnancy - is there anything you do to make them more comfortable with the process, especially women who are switching from a midwifery model of care or are seeking a less medically-managed birth?
- Talk to us about why high-risk doctors are actually more chill overall!
- What are your personal recommendations in choosing a great OB for YOU (you being our individual listeners)?
- How should a mother communicate when she wants something different?
- Something that women care about is the time and attention given to them during prenatal visits. What do your appointments look like?
- How much time will be spent with the doctor during labor?
- How involved are you in the birth process even when you’re not physically with the woman (talking to nurses, giving recommendations or instructions for the nurses over the phone/in-person)?
- Do you find that women who take a birth course are more prepared? If yes, in what ways?
- Do you find advantages to women having doulas/labor support?
- Talk to us about informed consent.
