Re: Male versus Female OB- POLL

I've always preferred female OB's but used both begrudgingly during the pregnancy of my dd#2 due to scheduling conflicts. However after the birth/assault on me during the birth of dd#2 I don't think I can physically ever have a male examine me again. If it was absolutely necessary, as in the only doctor that I can see within a 4 hour or so drive was male, then I would insist on my DH being there. I know the doc's don't normally like that but I need to know that I have someone on my side in case the OB try's to take advantage of me again.

If I were the OP male/female doc aside I would probably pass on the 39 week internal check. There isn't much point to them anyway.
