This is a great birth story. I am so happy that she was able to have a vaginal birth even after transferring but I do have to say something about what she wrote at the bottom. This:"Turns out also that he wasn't an OB/GYN he was a DO..."As as a future DO and hopefully OB/GYN, he probably was an OB/GYN. DOs can go into whatever specialty they like whether it be family med, surgery, peds etc. We just have different letters after our name than allopathic doctors, which have MD after theirs. We are taught a little bit different than MDs, more like we should treat the body as a whole, we should be caring to the patient, the body is self healing, and other holistic principles. So, I just wanted to say he was probably a DO and an OB/GYN but not an MD...just trying to do some advocacy for osteopathic medicine!
loose button-Ah ha! Thanks for clearing that up for me! :)
Your welcome! There aren't a whole lot of DOs out there so a lot of people don't know what we are! I just wanted to say something because I think we are better than MDs...kidding (kinda)!
