My OB said WHAT?

“… And you shouldn’t be afraid of home birth. It’s natural and
normal. (*pause*)  Did you know the world is predicted to end in 2012?” – OB on the topic of midwives and home birth.

  • Mine told me that I had pre-eclampsia because my BP was high one day right after my dad died, when it was over 90 degrees outside, and I had just climbed a bunch of stairs. I even did that 24 hour urine collection thing, which came back fine.

    Oh and there was also the time that I came in after applying for Medicaid and she told me that she wouldn't see me again until I applied (I had already applied, and turned in my card number, I just hadn't gotten my card yet). She basically said that I was being neglectful and irresponsible and trying to kill myself and my baby by not having Medicaid sooner (I had just found out I was pregnant).

    She's one of the many reasons why I'll never have another baby in a hospital unless it's an emergency... We hated her (but we live in a small town and she was my only option at the time).

  • That website gets me crazy! lol

    When I inquired about waterbirthing, my OB said that midwives wear their street shoes into birth tubs.
    I also asked her about my options for labor and she said said that we'd discuss this later~ when they induce me.
    * That was at my FIRST prenatal appt (w/first baby) when I was told I was healthy and fine.
