Do gynecologist have clients or do they just deliver anyone who is having a baby ?
I am a sophomore at Kankakee High School. I am 15 years & I love kids. I wanted to be pediatrician but now I want to be an OB/GYN.

Great question Aariasha, A gynecologist is a physician who specializes in medicine for women. An obstetrician is a physician who cares for women who are having babies. Many physicians who specialize actually become both a gynecologist and an obstetrician. This special doctor often joins a group of other doctors who share this specialty and they work together to care for women. This is especially helpful so there is always availability for the patient of someone in the group. It also has advantages for the physician, so you can actually take a family vacation, and not need to work around the mother who is expecting her baby! When you go to medical school after your bachelor's degree, you will have the chance to learn more about LOTS of specialties: pediatrics, ob/gyn, orthopedics, emergency medicine, etc. This will help you know what you prefer.
Best of luck in your future Aariasha!
