Appeal to false authority- outside of his area of expertise.

Where does that line get crossed with an OB?

What are your thughts?

I am just trying to get a picture here and get others opinions. I have an appt and am trying to arm myself with knowledge and the grace of God.

Not really sure what you mean, but I know I will not let my OB or anyone do anything I don't feel comfortable, even if it is against their "medical advice" or whatever.  They went to school for a long time, but that does not mean they're all-knowing.

I think a good example would be homebirths. Ob is ansurgeon so homebirth would be out his area of expertise. What do you think.

Not sure exactly what you're asking. 

I'm a pretty well informed person because I love doing research and I very much stand my ground if I do not believe in/agree with something.

Okay, I get it.  Like when doctors give nutritional advice, like on what to eat, yet they have very little to no education in nutrition.  You would want to go to a dietition for this information.

Parenting advice comes to mind. I had a family doctor tell me to blow in my sons face while he was getting a vaccination. That was apparently out of his area of expertise. I never went back.

Agreed. And kind of selfish. The baby is crying because they need something.

That line gets crossed in so many places by OB's. Some midwives, too, actually.
