just a little vent. A girl I know went in to be induced on Thursday. for low fluid sigh. She just posted this afternoon that it's a c-section for her. She hung in there quite a while and I don't blame her. it's her first baby. I just think it probably could have been prevented. She wasn't even over due. See it to much. ugh!

Like they'd tell her if it wasn't! Every woman who gets sectioned or induced seems to have some story of deteriorating placenta, low fluids, etc. Then they can feel they're so lucky baby is alive and doctor saved the day. I just can't believe that it's true most times.

OP, I've had many friends in the same type of situation. I just avoid the topic of birth generally, then I don't have to work to keep my opinions to myself and act sympathetic!

I went through this. Induced at 34 weeks due to preeclampsia . Low fluids. Then rushed off to c section after my dd had drops in her heart rate. My baby was born 3.9 lbs and I feel like this was due to poor healthcare and my concerns being ignored . I told my NP for Weeks about my swelling, blood pressure exc. Im just happy my dd was ok. Only in nicu for 14 days.

Oh gosh, I'm sorry that happened! I hope baby is healthy now :-)
I wasn't AT ALL referring to a situation like yours. Clearly no doctor on the planet would rush a baby that early for false/exaggerated reasons.

I was referring more to doctors who come up with these BS reasons to induce a technically full term Mom rather than wait for labor to happen on it's own. I have no doubt that SOME are truly needed, but not nearly the percentage that are :-)

My dd is amazing 10 m over 16 lbs.
I know you weren't talking about my specific case. But I agree with BS doctors like my NP who just ignore concerns of moms and babies. Its all about money. I wanted a water birth but things happen and in the end it worked out

the dad posted about the c-section saying no complications just not progressing like the doctors want. face palm. exactly! WHAT THE DOCTORS WANT NOT WHAT IS BEST! GRRRRR It never ends well when you try to force the body to do something that happens naturally.

Doesn't the USA have the highest c section rates in the world?
