OBs want to give you drugs or cut you open. A midwife will often suggest other more 'natural' things. This frustrates me.
When a mom has been laboring for many hours her body gets tired. A 'stalled' labor may just be a body taking a break. Why are practitioners and women so eager to exhaust the mother/themselves? I understand that there are times when it may be necessary for babe to be born sooner rather than later, but in a normal, healthy birth why do this?
I've been reading Ina May's book and it saddens me how many times the midwives resort to AROM, nipple stimulation, etc.
