Do you think that CM should hire OBs ect.

I mean if at all possible wouldnt they be a grate asset? No means a replacement for your regular doc but just a few resident OBs and Petatricans to help us a long in the forms and such.

  • No - I have some great resource books, plus my own OBs - and then there's the internet at my fingertips!

  • What forms are you having trouble filling out - if you're not comfortable calling your ob or peds office for help then you deserve one who cares about your concerns!!!!

    I don't think the questions asked here on CM are asking for that much detailed medical help that some other moms can't come up with suggestions - and most often it's also suggested in the same response to call your doctor.

  • I think OP meant to say "help us along in the forums" not "help us a long in the form". Regardless of what she meant though, I don't think CM should hire OB's or pedi's. I think that if a person on here needs medical advice - they should call their doctor - not rely on answers from CM. Although, many people on CM do ask for medical advice - and it drives me crazy! Even if we had doctors on CM they could not give accurate medical answers to these questions - they are not privy to all the information or able to give exams!
