I was reading a book that had a section interviewing women in Canada and the UK who are members in birth trauma support group. Many of these women have complications from long labors,instrumental delivery or tearing. A lot of them talked about no one explaining the possible risks of vaginal birth either in appointments with their midwives/doctors or in prenatal classes but constantly being bombarded by the dangers of c-section. I'm in the US but my doctor and prenatal classes never talked about it either but they did go into great detail on c-section.
Did they ever go over the risks of complications especially possible long term complications with vaginal birth with you? i.e. prolapse, fecal incontinence, pelvic pain,vaginal gaping,bladder issues,etc...
FYI They did have me sign a consent form with possible complications listed before I was given pitocin,an epidural, my c-sections and with the flu shot they gave me. So lack of getting a list of complications is pretty rare.
