Since I've moved to a different part of town (and didn't really care for my last doctor) I'm going to be getting myself a new, more accessible primary care physician. There is a Providence clinic pretty near by, and I've pulled up their website and looked at the different bios for a few different female doctors who also specialize in obstetrics (since I know I'll be needing it relatively soon). I am down to two potentials. My question for you is, as I soon would like to start planning a family, and will have (I'm sure) a LOT of questions, how important is it that my doctor be a mother herself?
Of the two candidates that I'm considering, one is a mother and one (it appears) is not. As a new mom, would it be beneficial for me to have a doctor who has been through it before and can add some personal-experience guidance to the process?
Thoughts please. =)
