I've posted before about this but she's gotten worse. My friend is 5"1' over 300lbs with high blood pressure and insulin resistance all from before she was pregnant. She is a smoker,only one or two a day but enough to raise the risk of placental abruption(what her blood pressure didn't).
Her family are very "natural" and she's scared to death of surgery so she is just set on having a home birth and she found an insane midwife who'll do it for her.
I know she's an adult but we're talking about something that could kill two people. Asking me to step back on this midwide ILLEGALLY attending this is akin to asking me to step back and watch a family member commit suicide.
>>>>>>>I know that a lot of this is because she's scared of surgery and that it would disappoint her family, are there any natural type blogs or websites aimed toward women who do a more natural parenting but have c-sections and don't berate them as second rate?<<<<<<
It might help her to feel better about them IDK.
I care deeply for my friend but with human life I just can't compromise. If it comes down to it can you call the CPS about something like this? In the long run even if she hates me her and her baby would be alive which would make her a whole lot happier in the long run.
EDIT: THE DAMN MIDWIFE TOLD HER THAT IF SHE GOES TO A DOCTOR SHE WILL HAVE A C-SECTION AUTOMATICALLY. This whole damn deciscion is based on fear and intimidation to make dangerous choices be it the midwife or her family. THIS IS NOT AN AUTONOMY ISSUE THIS IS AN INTIMIDATION AND SAFETY ISSUE.Answer Question
