View Poll Results: How many delivering doctors/midwives are in your group?
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?
Mom to 4 girls - one age 9 (January 2005), 7 year old twins (January 2007) and new baby girl born July 2, 2014
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
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.
