A friend of dh's and mine had their baby at 34w. He was 5lb11oz, and breathing on his own. BUT, the drs that delivered him hurt him pretty bad.
She went in at 1:30am after her water broke. She wasn't in labor. No contractions at all. She thought she was gonna be on the ante partum, instead they made her go into labor w/ pitocin. Every time they got to a 3, his heart rate dropped to the 40s. :( they prepped for a Csec twice. When he finally came out (after 17 hours of pit), he was bruised and scratched and swollen from the fluids and pit. They literally think the induce contractions were squeezing him. They went as far as to tell my friend that it was because her pubic bone was too small (haha. Whatever. It's not!!). So then they admit him to the NICU. They have her attempt to nurse w/ baby on breast 1 time in 24 hours, and gave her a pump w/o instructing her what to do.
Now baby is on formula since they were careless. They inserted a feeding tube today (he is 5 days old) since he wasn't drinking the full 3oz of formula.
I want to cry!! I want to tell her to make them stick it!! I want her to put baby on breast and not let him off!
And yet I keep my mouth shut. Cuz it's none of my business. :(
