not telling the ob/gyn

This may sound like a dumb question but I'm really just wondering if I'm missing something.

I completely understand that if you are no-tell and live in a small community, that you might not want the ob/gyn office to know because word might get around. But otherwise (I live thousands of miles from the ob/gyn and am very open about the process), are there other legal or medical reasons why people wouldn't tell?

I can think of some reasons why it would be good for the ob/gyn to know: in case there was a hormonal abnormality during the pregnancy, so that the ob/gyn wouldn't push for invasive testing like amnio based on the age of the mother, things like that.

Are there other reasons for not telling?
