    This is an excellent topic which Dr. Lindemann hasn’t been asked to address in the media! Will no doubt appear on his Lindemannmd.com blog soon!

    One danger to your new baby is your first child’s perception of being replaced. It really doesn’t matter whether it’s the second, third, fourth, or fifth, the youngest child is being replaced. With my own children I never missed an opportunity to let the child being displaced assist with the care of the one doing the displacing. I didn’t use the older child to fetch things, but to actually assist with feeding, changing, and dressing. I always invited Dad’s and children to attend prenatal visits. It’s very easy for the older child to feel shut out when so much attention is lavished on the new baby.

One of the things I learned as a student and resident, is that in obstetrics you can have a lot to say about your outcome. In other words, you can pick your outcome much of the time—not all of the time—but certainly about 90% of the time. Pregnant women so often feel they shouldn’t question the expert, the obstetrician. My goal is to provide pregnant women a safe arena where they can freely ask questions about their choices in their pregnancy and delivery. I can’t offer you medical advice, but I can tell you about my experiences with the 6000 babies I delivered.

In today’s medical environment, it is very difficult to raise questions about your choices of care. I want to encourage women to have the confidence to trust in themselves and the decisions they make about their care.

Obstetrics isn’t about disease.

It’s about preserving your and your baby’s good health.
