It is usually easy for female patients to get
their wishes in having female nurses do intimate procedures
such as urinary catheterizations on them since there are many
more female nurses than male nurses. There are hardly any male
ob/gyn nurses so female patients who go through childbirth can
often be assured that they would only have female nurses.
Many hospitals especially in rural areas cannot
assure a woman that she would have a female ob/gyn deliver her
baby if she wishes to because they often have more male ob/gyns
or not enough female ob/gyns. For example, one hospital has
two male ob/gyns and one female ob/gyns and that is a problem
because all of the doctors are on call.
We would like to work with female ob/gyns because
many of them don't understand how important modesty is to some
women and their husbands. For example, one female ob/gyn invited
some medical students to come in for a C-Section despite one
woman's written request to not have any medical students present.
Birth of a child is supposed to be a joyous time for both the
woman and her husband. Modesty is often disregarded when a woman
gives birth. Some people may assume women are too focused on
the pain of childbirth to be concerned about modesty, but that
is not true. Some women opt to have home births with midwives.
Home births are good for women who have low risk pregnancies.
One lady and her husband requested an all female ob/gyn surgical
team to be present for her hysterectomy. All of the medical
professionals were female except for one male scrub. The lady
saw him as she was being drugged. Just because you have a female
ob/gyn, there is no guarantee that there will be no male medical
professionals present. You must speak up about your wishes and
request that they tell you who all will be present for your
surgery. See some OB/GYN
Sometimes, ECG or other heart procedures can
expose too much of a woman's breasts. This is rarely an issue
with men because most of them don't care to be topless unless
they have conditions such as gynecomastia. Some men with gynecomastia
are embarrassed to be topless.
