  • My Ob was younger, and male, and wonderful You need a doctor you can be comfortable with, it doesn't matter about age. Some of the older ones are set in their ways... while a younger one is more open to new ideas, etc.

  • Just because your dr looks young doesnt mean she is young so keep that in mind. They have to attend school a really long time to be a OB doc so im sure shes not as young as your mom is thinking. If your like your dr then you stay with your dr regardless of your mom its up to you not her. My OB is a younger guy hes not super young obviously but hes probably in his mid 30's. He is great. with my son i had a older dr and he was a retard i almost lost my son because he wouldnt do a c section when i needed one he waited thank goodness nothing was wrong but just because they are older doesnt mean they are better.

  • well, then ignore your mom :) it's your choice who your doctor is and not your mothers. If you like this doc, stay with her :)

  • My doctor is younger and I absolutely LOVE him! I don't think there is any reason to judge on age. Even old doctors may not have a clue.

  • Do you feel comfortable with your doc???? Just because a doctor is older doesn't mean they are more competent. Go with your intuition. You WILL know what is right for YOU, not anyone else. GOOD LUCK!

  • How do you think the doc is treating you? If you like the doc keep her. Tell her your mom thinks she's still wet behind the ears and see what she says? I bet she'll tell you how many babies she's delivered and you can decide if you want to keep her. If she says "counting you? 1!!!" I might switch! LOL
