    I was really lucky, I guess, to have the ob/gyn that I did when pregnant with Meg. He was supportive of breastfeeding, of my wishes, didn’t arbitrarily do certain “procedures”, and was a gentle, soft-spoken man. I did find him through LLL, so he was highly recommended. I also had an experienced and supportive coach (not the baby daddy), who was also a LLL leader. That made a big difference. Oddly, 31 years ago, there was a big push for breastfeeding & natural childbirth. I truly believe that when they started allowing lawyers to advertise on TV, and all the malpractice suits started against drs., and obs especially, that’s when all the drs. began to care about was CYA. A lot of ob/gyns dropped the ob part at that point. Very sad state for mothers & babies both today.

    I agree with you Debby. There are still a couple of gems of OB but they are an endangered species! (California recently lost their most beloved pro-women/pro-birth OB). What is sad is that there aren’t enough of them in all areas and that the majority of women don’t do proper research and interviewing before selecting one so even with good OB’s out there they end up stuck with OB’s that don’t deserve them.
