It depends on your lifestyle and your medical history.  The doctor will discuss birth control with you before you go home from the hospital.  

Read up on the different types before you deliver, so that you can make a choice that fits with your needs.

Some people can't/don't take pills consistently, so a BCP would not be a good choice.  Some women are squeemish about touching their own bodies, so a diaphragm would not be the best choice.  

For some, a condom and foam are fine.  Others find that choice bothersome.  An IUD fits inside the uterus and needs you to do  nothing but to be sure the strings are there each month.  

There are also injectable forms of birth control, ranging from once a month shots, to once every 3 months.  

Patches are another form.

So get reading, and have your questions ready for the doctor.  You can even discuss at your remaining prenatal visits, to get an idea of what the doctor thinks, too.
