In college, you can major in any field and still attend medical school to become an OB/GYN. After medical school, you then complete a residency in OB/GYN to train and practice medicine.

Pick the major that is most interesting to you. You do not need to be a science major. Philosophy majors have the highest medical school acceptance rate in the country: https://www.usnews.com/education/blogs/medical-school-admissions-doctor/2015/08/12/shine-on-medical-school-applications-without-a-premed-major

You just need to take the medical school prerequisites (https://www.kaptest.com/study/mcat/the-prerequisites-of-medical-school/) and be involved in your community, in clinic, and in volunteering.
