  • I don't, then again my OBGYN is Jewish. I don't understand, is it too much to type Christmas? I find the X bad. I would never buy a tree from a place with an X. I'm not super religious, but I think taking Christ and replacing with X is strange.

    Are you sure of their religious beliefs? Sending a thank you to staff. pastries or coffee, yes I've done that after my deliveries but not for holiday.

  • I didn't give my OB a gift, but i did for the nurses at the hospital that I was in. I made a big basket full candies, tea,coffee, and other little things for the nursing staff. They were excellent.

  • Maybe gift basket for the staff and a nice pen for him to show him your appreciation. It is nice you thought of giving him something.

  • The gift was the big fat check you gave them for their services. No, I'm just kidding. I do agree that a nice gift basket is a good idea. Also include a picture of your baby. My midwife had pictures of all the babies she had delivered on her wall. Not sure if everyone does this, but I thought it was nice.
