Help! Baby keeps choking on milk - bottle fed

Hello!
My newborn coughs and chokes at least once during every feeding. It scares the life out of me and makes feeding stressful. I'm worried about it getting in her lungs. Is this a common thing, or am I doing something wrong? Anything I can do to help prevent this? 
TIA!

    What size nipple are you using? It should be the slowest flow for a newborn (either newborn or stage/size 1) other than that it sounds like you should check in with the pediatrician. Best of luck!
