Serve Many But They Forget About Me

I serve many, confirmed by how healthy those I serve are. Yet after they’re successful they forget about me. It’s true, sometimes I hit them and they’re often bloody, but they don’t mind.

What am I?

A doctor (more specifically, an obstetrician) or a midwife. They deliver thousands of healthy babies but they are soon forgotten. Sometimes they smack the baby on the butt to clear the airway, and newborn babies can have blood on them from the placenta being pulled from the walls of the uterus or from an episiotomy.

I like the fruit eating theory, but what about being the fruit tree? It serves many (all the fruit) they ripen and look their best, are picked, and the tree is forgotten.

Not bad eh?

There are multiple answers but for me the best are: doctor, medicine itself, a heart, hunger and old friends.

There could be many answers, but it says some times I hit them and often they bleed, so it should be some sort of exercise equipment. Like dumb bells or a sparing partner. It has to fit all of the clues .
