Male Nurses in Labor and Delivery?

I was just thinking about this, has anyone ever had a male nurse when they gave birth. Everyone I know has had female nurses. There has to be some out there, they can't discriminate right? Did you have a male nurse? How would you feel if you had a male nurse while in labor?

I personally wouldn't care, I love my male doctors a lot and I think men can be very comforting.

  • I never had a male nurse in L&D but I dont see how it would be any different than a male doctor, they are still a medical professional. It wouldnt bother me at all, I have had male nurses for many other things and they are always very kind and caring :)

  • It wouldn't matter to me, as long as the male nurse or doctor were a trustworthy person.

  • I had a male nurse and two male doctors. There was a female nurse in there too. I personally didn't care. Doesn't bother me at all.

  • I had male doctors, so you'd think I wouldn't mind. HOWEVER....I had my kids in a teaching hospital. Apparently my crotch was a class project!

  • I had a male intern in mine observing and shawdowing my female nurse....It didn't bother me; but he was extremely hot and as young as me so I was a little embarassed, even though I love DH with all of my heart. lol
