Don't be concerned about asking them to explain or justify their recommendations. We spent over two hours in consult with the MFM who oversaw my last two pregnancies; you are, ultimately, placing a great amount of trust and confidence in this person; giving of their time to be a partner is not too much to expect from them (and most doctors realize this). This is your life and the life of your family; a good doctor (and one you want leading your ship) will not balk at explaining and discussing reasons and rationale with his/her patients. Like Sam mentioned, our doctors usually have our very best interest at heart - they want healthy mamas and babies. Finding the right fit for you and your family and becoming a team together will be your best ammunition against this heart-wrenching disease.
