After months of educating a friend of mine that is a first time mom on natural birth (which she wanted), breech presentations and births, and the dangerous of surgical births i lost her to her ob. She went in for her 40 week and they told her they SUSPECTED the baby was breech again and now her csection is scheduled for in the morning. They never did an ultrasound and they wont give her one tomorrow either. Ive told her over and over that she has till 42 weeks and even showed her were ACOG states up till 42 weeks and how breech baby can flip during labor. She now refuses to speak to me and has disappeared off of my fb. This whole pregnancy she has never complained, always said he will come when ready that there is no rush and openly taken my advice and research. I know her family has been bugging her about having the baby and she spent the day yesterday with her sister how has been the worst. I just pray is she goes through with it that there are no complications and she doesnt regret it.
Edit: im not calling all hospital birthers brainwashed nor am i saying she isnt free to agree with her OB. I know women who have birthed all different ways that are both happy or regretful of medicated births, natural births, csection etc... its just something isnt right when you have a mom thats super excited, that was planning a natural birth up till today now having a nonmedically needed surgical birth.
