The epidural question got me thinking. A lot of women on here feel that others are judgmental. I can only speak for myself here, but I personally try to spread info for the benefit of others. I don't judge people for their decisions but I will always offer them information. What they do with it from then on is up to them.
If someone politely sat you down to talk about risks and dangers associated with common procedures would you be more likely to look into it further? Or would you still find them judgemental and shrug them off? Would you take the time to follow up on their sources or toss it in the trash? Would you take the information given to your doctor and ask them to provide proof that it's wrong? What if they couldn't?
No rude replies please, I'm just trying to get a better understanding for how women feel about this.

What if a doctor wouldn't give you honest answers because they have their best interest at heart to do all the episiotomies, inductions, c-sections etc?? No matter what your docor says or what anyone says you should do the research for yourself. A lot of people no matter who tells them what they are just hard headed to consider anything anyways.
