Oh the stories of the L&d floor I can tell. One being today, this woman came in for an induction, she asked if she would be able to walk around, the nurse she got told her no she would have to stay in bed. The woman then said "either I be able to get up or I'm going home and waiting to go into labor" the nurse argued with her and the woman said "be quiet because you aren't going to make me stay in the bed". I don't blame her for being like that though, an older nurse said she was in labor for 18 hours and she was 8 cm and then she got up and she dilated to 10 in like 20 minutes.

Would you have been mad at the woman? Because I don't blame her

When I was induced I was able to get up want walk around. The IV tubes were long enough, and the pole was mobile. It wasn't until the epidural that I was confined to my bed. Which was fine because I fell asleep, lol.

The woman was in the right, IMO.

I don't blame her. She should be able to labor however she wants. And she felt she needed to walk around. What reason did the nurse have?

And I forgot to add that the woman had her baby in 8 hours, she's going home in the morning.

I do not understand this hospitals rules honestly, if you have an iv in your arm you can't get up its stupid to me.

Well, if that is hospital policy, the nurse is required to abide by it.

The patient is free to seek treatment elsewhere
