The Leapfrog Group is proud to join in the Choosing Wisely campaign to help our members and their employees get better, safer health care and avoid unnecessary care.

We encourage health care consumers to utilize the resources available here – as well as those available at  www.LeapfrogGroup.org  and  www.HospitalSafetyGrade.org – to make better choices about their care. Being an active part of the health care team is critical, and we hope that the resources here help you become an informed and empowered patient or caregiver.

Maternity Care

Over the past several decades, hospitals, healthcare providers, and patients have become more willing to intervene in the natural process of pregnancy and childbirth, without any pressing medical reason, but with risk to mothers and babies.

Give your baby a great start. Make sure you talk to your doctor about the information we’ve assembled here, to be sure you are doing things that are medically necessary for you and your baby, and avoid things that are not.
