I consented to having two student nurses when I had my son in the delivery room, one was a male. And I loved him! The female student was really timid but the male just got right in there and helped the nurse change my bed, held my puke bucket when my husband was getting a bite to eat, and he did my straight cath lol. I appreciated that he was really calm and laid back because it put my own nerves at ease. Both my OB's were male so this was no different. I even told the dept manager when she came around to see how everything was how great he and my nurse were, I wouldnt have made it through without those two! It made no difference to me what sex they were just that they were great nurse/student nurse to me during the anxiety of my first delivery.
