My OB is male and he's actually the one that delivered me when I was born and delivered my daughter when she was born :) he's sooo excited for my husband and I since we were ttc for almost 5 years. I suffered quite a few miscarriages also. He's awesome!!! He also has 2 other male doctors and 4 other females in his practice with him but they make sure to give me him because I don't like the other ones lol

Male and he was great, but a female ended up delivering my son, so I go to her now.

Male, he's really good. I had a female gyn for a while but she was kind of a bitch..

Like I've told others id rather have a caring attentive doctor than care if its a man or woman.

Both lol, my office has 4 people on and the rotate you between all of them so that you are all set with whomever is there to deliver, and also who is on call if you have an emergency or questions. I actually really like it this way, I feel like I have a whole team that has my back durring this :)

My on is male but if he isn't availiable the. I have to get to know the rest of the obs so there 2 males one female. That's only if my Dr isn't availiable when o deliver. They want me to feel comfy with the others that might come in to deliver this baby

My OB is a female, I have always had a female Gyno. It's not that I am shy or would feel weird with a male, I just feel that a female has literal real world experience with female anatomy and it just makes me more comfortable that my OB has gone through exactly what I will be experiencing.

My OB is a male. I received a female and a male recommendation. The female was AWFUL, so we went to the male and we like him.
