NEVER! Ok my birth was absolutely horrible. That was strike one.

Yesterday for school I had to work labor and delivery.
They put EVERYONE on internal fetal monitoring. That became a discussion, bc the mom had no reason, the Dr just orders it I asked why.
"that's just how we do things, unless of course the mom is like you and they know better"
Strike 2

Then mom bled a little more than normal, not gross amounts. After about 5 minutes they came in with a syringe. The mom asked what it was she was told "its for your bleeding" and was given the injection. Didn't tell her what drug, didn't get permission, just did it. It was, cytotec. A drug NEVER tested just put on the market with a high risk of embolism.
Strike 3

This was a different hospital than where I delivered. Looks like they all just do shit for no reason, our without permission.

It made me mad bc these women don't know

Isn't that illegal? No wonder moms feel out of control! They are!

The hospital here is great. It feels more like a midwife birthing center. Because it is small and the closest big one is so far away they take precautions and try to avoid interventions. My dr is very supportive of natural labor and walking and stuff.

Sorry mama:( my last hospital birth was amazing. Couldn't have asked for a better one, no interventions and an awesome support team!

I'm sure it all depends on the hospital. I went to Winnie Palmer both times and loved it. If I ever have another baby I would go back.

I just got my Medical Records today from my 2011 induction and ultimate section.  Turns out they gave me three doses of cytotec vaginally...   I'm furious, and I can totally understand where you're coming from.  You have every right to be frustrated, just as we mamas who it's done to have every right to feel like the lab rats we've become...  :(
