Yesterday I had my annual visit. In case my readership is not made up entirely of women, I won't go into details.
The point is that as I was driving to my Dr's office, I realized I was excited to see her. Her being, Dr. Schwartz. The attachment I have with Dr. Schwartz is strong. And entirely on my side. She delivered my babies! Of course I love her!
I think something happens between the mother and the obstetrician at the time of birth. The Dr. sees the woman monthly, at least, and then weekly as delivery approaches. There is a camaraderie, a sense that this person really gets you. Understands the pains of pregnancy, listens with care to concerns, encourages you to keep up the good fight! I know it sounds a little hoakie, but I developed a this sort of feeling with Dr. Schwartz, so the annual visit is not just to make sure that I'm a healthy woman, but also to review the wonderful relationship we have because of the birth of my babies. Their birth-days were the beginning of a beautiful friendship. Well, I wouldn't say we were friends since I only see her once a year. But she's a constant in my life, and there are some friends that I don't even see that often.
