I’m not sure if this should go here or in vocations but…
Anyway, I’m a first semester freshmen in College. I’ve always planned on being a veterinarian, horse vet. All of my high school classes were gearing towards that, everything I’ve ever done since middle school. But recently I’ve begun to think about becoming an obstetrician instead. I dont’ know why this suddenly occured to me but it’s sort of a firm, persistant itch in my mind now. Here’s where you come in.
Do you have an opinion? I like the idea that I could be a good Catholic Doctor wheras as a vet I couldnt’ really do anything for the church (I feel). To the women out there, would you care if your husband was an OB-GYN? One of my friends thought that I couldn’t see women…who weren’t my wife, like that because I’m Catholic. I didn’t think that was true but thought I’d ask. I thought that it might be good because I would be an orthodox Catholic, the world needs more Pro-Life doctors, right?
How did you all decide your career? Any advice out there? (Really concerned about whether women wouldn’t like their husband being an OB-GYN. Don’t want to scare away a good woman because of a career!)
