Re: Do You Prefer A Male Or Female OB?

I often joke that I wish there were midhusbands. I'll homebirth, so no OB for me, but I do admit that I'd prefer a male. I didn't vote that way though, because I have never heard of a male midwife delivering at home.
I have heard of one male midwife just don't remember where.
