If it were just a matter of him delivering my baby, it would be disrespectful - it's not. Last time, I didn't even SEE my doctor for 30 full hours, and then only for a few minutes near the end. I was stuck with a parade of residents, nurses, and students of varying attitude and skill. I was given terrible advice and pushed into intervention after intervention despite having a clear, printed birth plan. Its not that I don't want a doctor to deliver my baby, it's that I don't want a HOSPITAL to deliver my baby.
