because no one offered an episiotmy, which I would have been fine with. I was at the hospital on a Sunday morning from 1am-7 am in labor. The dr was sleeping and the nurses IDK what they were doing but dh and I were alone laboring which was fine with me. They dropped the ball on checking on me after awhile though even though I was progressing fast. Ihad already tore when the nurses came in. I didn't need anyone to tell me I was 10 cm lol. They ran to get the dr and he couldn't even get his scrubs on fast enough. The nurse had the baby partially out and he was still out of it He insisted of vacuuming though because the heart rate dipped a bit and drs get nervous when that happens even though its normal with each contraction, the baby is literally being squeezed, She came out perfect, just a little dry skin from being a week overdue was it. APGAR was like 8 and 9 ,even better than my c-sec babeand they said they NEVER give 10's.
