my Dr is moving into a new office, the office has been empty recently so we got to chatting, I had that super annoying glucose test so I had time, it was lunch time so the staff was gone just me and her in the office. We were talking about my Dh and how he's gone on vacation to Norway, and how that was why I missed my last appointment. And how I left town to visit family so my family could spoil me. then the kids topic came up she said she didn't have any kids of her own, and how it just wasn't a possibility for her. We kept chatting about other non medical things. Later it hit me, why did I assume she had kids...??? Does not having kids impact her ObGyn capabilities - I'd say no but maybe others disagree...???
Would a female ObGyn with no kids influence your decision in picking them as your Dr? Tell me why or why not. I'm.curious as to what others think
Update...... From reading the responses I see some of you prefer midwives who have experienced child birth. As to where the ones who use doctors said, having children or.being male wouldn't matter to them, or not having children would probably be a plus for availability.
Very interesting glad I asked the question =)
