My OB office has changed since I had delivered. It used to have 3 doctors and 1 nurse practitioner. The 3 doctors delivered babies. Now, there are 4 delivering doctors. Two are the same as before. But there are doctors (2 or 3?) there who only do Gyn. There are 2 nurse practitioners.

I wonder what's the norm now for how many delivering doctors/midwives are in a group together?

One MW and one MW apprentice who's at the end of her apprenticeship, she'll be the one "delivering" too.

6 doctors and one certified nurse midwife. They actually have two other locations with more doctors so that is at the location my doctor is at, not including others.

There are 5 women OBGYN's at my Dr's office. If I deliver during the week, my Dr will be the one, but if its on the weekend then it will be an on-call basis. Feb 13th they have a "Meet the Doctors" event at L&D in the hospital where we will meet all Dr's in the practice, the nurses, anesthesiologist, and whoever else MIGHT be involved in the birth. We also get a tour of the L&D ward.
If there was a chance I would be delivered by a man, I would have switched practices. I have never been comfortable with male OBGYNs, but I think its really nice that you get to meet the ENTIRE staff that you will work with when baby is born.

Now I just have to decide if its appropriate for me to bake them cookies or a special cheesecake when we go.... Getting "in" with the staff couldn't hurt, could it? lol

I see a midwife who has a solo practice. She does have an assistant midwife at the birth and since this is my 5th birth with her I know all her assistants, too

There are three in the group, but I see the OB that I'm assigned to at every visit and he will be doing my delivery (as long as it's not an emerg in the middle of the night and he's not on call).

Way too many. I am not looking forward to rounding with each because I love my doctor so much. I think cause she is young like me she'll be there no matter what :-) Plus she has practically all the call it seems herself.

There are 4 doctors in the office but I see the same one each time, and same nurse. My doctor will deliver unless it was an emergency in the middle of the night with him not on call. That being said, this will be a repeat c-section so he'll do it.

I have one main midwife and she'll be the one who'll be there when the baby's born. But she does work with two other midwives, though they live a little further, it's more just like backup.

My practice has 8 delivering OB's, plus to GYN only drs, and two Nurse Practitioners. Also one of the GYN only drs is one of the only tubal reversal specialist in the area.
