SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) This a question geared mostly toward female ophtho residents/recent grads, but men are invited to respond too. In your experience or that you have observed of others, when is a decent time to be pregnant and have a kid? In residency/few years after graduating while getting established/or established ophthalmologist? I'll be starting my 1st yr of ophtho in 2 mos, and I know a few female residents who have kids their 2nd yr. Currently I don't have kids.
