This is likely to vary depending on where you are located. For example, in the Netherlands maternity care is provided by family doctor or midwife who you will see once a month for the first half of your pregnancy and less often as the pregnancy progresses.
In Singapore maternity care is obstetric led. One member of staff may be caring for many women in a hospital setting. So in Singapore it is common to have a doula or private midwife to advise you during pregnancy, assist during birth and provide postnatal support.
If you are located in the UAE then you must be married if you plan to have a baby. A marriage cert will be required when you go for your first pregnancy test. If you are located in Dubai with private maternity insurance, you can look forward to some of the best private maternity facilities in the world. Similarly, to other countries you can choose your own ob-gyn. However, when you are opening a maternity file, check hospital policy regarding your husband. Some allow them to stay beyond visiting times or overnight, but it does vary by hospital.
