question for OB nurses

  1. Can a nurse or a doctor tell if their pregnant/delivering patient has had a previous pregnancy and delivery?

    They could tell during a routine OB exam, but not during the delivery. It would also depend on whether the woman carried to term, if she had a c section or natural, episiotomy or not, and also on how attentive the providers were. When I worked OB it never occurred to me to doubt what the woman told me.
