For those of you who are pregnant I was wondering if you saw a male or female OB doctor, and if you planned to deliver in a hospital, birthing center or at home. Do you plan to have a medicate birth, if yes are you using narcotics, an epidural or a walking epidural. And did you write or have you written a birth plan Just curious.

My current ob is a male doctor, but we are moving to another fort, so I will have to see who I am rea__signed too. I am having my baby at an army hospital and possibly medicated with a walking epidural. I have not decieded if I am going to write a birth plan. Just curious as to what everyone else is doing.

what is the difference between walking epidural or just a plain epidural?

I saw a male OB there is no shame and he didnt make me feel uncomfortable.He was very nice, Mine was natural all the way!!!

A walking epidural is a lower dose then a regular epidural. You are able to move around much easier, but you feel more.

I had my first baby at a teaching hospital...during the day and a half they were trying to induce labor I discovered that male doctors were much more gentle. Also, male doctors are more sympathetic when you have a symptom bothering you...maybe it's experience from dealing with a wife, or something. I had a female doctor tell me there was no reason I couldn't work 18 hours a day when I was 24 weeks pregnant and being treated for high blood pressure. The doctor I have now (a male) wrote me a note when I was 18 weeks saying I couldn't work more than six hours a day. Can't really answer your labor questions, nothing went the way I had planned it.
