I'm not a mother yet (not for lack of trying - *sigh*) but this phenomenon drives me bonkers too. I get so annoyed by those posts on mommd that say: "I've wanted to go to medical school since I was five! But my husband doesn't want strangers raising our kids! Can I stay home for 15 years during residency and then work 3 hours per week after that? Any advice would be great!" Makes me want to shout: think, woman! THINK!

I agree, however, that many young women at the beginning of their medical training are *totally* unrealistic about their future family lives. You wouldn't believe how many of my classmates (male or female) say that their kids won't be in daycare, because they are not "having children so that someone else raises them".
