Re: Do You Prefer A Male Or Female OB?

For me, it doesn't matter at all what the gender my OB is. I've had a female OB who I absolutely loved and was heartbroken to move away from during the middle of my pregnancy. And I have a male OB now who I love almost as much. DH gets uncomfortable with the "internal exams" and has never asked me to switch, but I know he'd love it if I got a female OB. I really wouldn't want to switch....I feel comfortable with this OB, he was my OB for at least part of every single one of my pregnancies, and I would hate to start over with someone new. (Like I said, DH has never asked me to switch....I'm just justifying why I wouldn't want to).

Nearly every female friend I've ever talked to has been shocked that I have and like a male OB. But I know there must be other people out there like me because it seems like there are way more male OB's than female ones!
