Kind of a spin-off from the scheduled c-section/induction discussion in Politics & Current Events:
I know that many, many c-sections are done unnecessarily. When I had my daughter, I had gone to the hospital for an u/s my OB ordered to check on things, as I was 41w. The u/s said that I had no fluid left. They checked me in & said they wanted to start me on cytotec. They were also constantly monitoring her. This resulted in my daughter going into distress, her heartrate dropping, and me going into emergency surgery.
I so wanted to avoid all of that - I did not want to be induced, I did not want pain meds, and I did NOT want a c-section.
So, what do you do in that situation? Tell the Doctors & Nurses to f*$k off? Can you do that?
