These are a few of the decisions you will probably be asked to make before leaving the hospital, birthing center, or at your child’s first pediatric visit (in the event of a home birth).  

Things to consider are: 

  • why you might want this?
  • what other options are available and reasonable?

Please note: We do our best to offer the most recent and accurate information possible, but encourage you to do your own independent research before making any decisions. The decisions are yours to make for your baby.
