We have provided an online directory of hospitals where at
least one all female ob/gyn practice has privileges there. Most
hospitals have at least several ob/gyn practices with privileges
there. Many of them have both male and female ob/gyns. In all
ob/gyn practices, ob/gyns are on rotation so if you want to
have assurance that only a female ob/gyn be present for your
childbirth, you will need to choose an all female ob/gyn practice.
Make sure that the all female ob/gyn practice doesn't
rotate with other practices by contacting them before you make
a decision. You also will need to take into consideration
that if you needed a Cesarean section or epidural that an anesthesiologist
or a Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist (CRNA) will be involved
in your care. Make sure that they are aware you want only females
in your care. If for some reason, only a male anesthesiologist
is available, you could request that you be properly covered
and prepped before he comes in so he would not see any of your
private parts at all.
We cannot guarantee that this directory is correct because
changes often take place that we may not be aware of. Sometimes,
female ob/gyn practices may dissolve or quit practicing at a
hospital. Be sure you call the female ob/gyn practices first
to see if their information is still accurate. Check out statistics
for all-female ob/gyn practices.
If you see any outdated information or you would like for us
to add an all female ob/gyn practice that is not yet in the
. Also, check out our all-female
ob/gyn practice locator that allows you to search
for practices based on miles.
