She was 2 cm dilated like she had been for 2 Weeks so the Dr told all of us to go home we were not needed and to return in the morning that she needed rest. He hadnt even seen her yet.
We went home until 8 am when we returned she was 5 cm with an epidural and still in pain lots of pain she couldnt even talk. At around 11 am she developed fever 103.6 they gave her antibiotics still refused nausea meds.
At noon she was 7 cm screaming in pain cant even put a sentence together, it's burning not labor her catheter! Nurses say its normal and give her a shot of Demerol in the leg and finally give her nausea meds in her iv. At 1 they turn off her epidural completely.
at 3:00pm she is 9 cm and wanting to push they get the Dr Dr tells her baby doesnt want to drop into the birthcanal. He tells her ”you have to push him into the birthcanal then out”.
This was why my mom had an emergency c-sec with my older sister, my sister is terrified crying, telling Dr give me a c-sec. He says no I wont do that lets start pushing.
For 2 hrs she pushed throwing up with every push finally he dropped into her canal, she asked for an episiotomy for him to cut her he said ”no u dont know its better to tear naturally” so she tore top and bottom. Not having the epidural for 4 hrs she felt everything! at 520 pm he finally came out. Her son was 8lbs 14 Oz 20 in long and was on oxygen for awhile she didnt get to hol him until like midnight.
At the end of everything she is so swollen the nurses told her she was more swollen then anyone ever it wasnt normal. She cant walk normal cause she cant close her legs. Her legs are double the size and extremely painful, her back is so bad she cant sleep comfortably.
Please tell me did this hosp do everything right? I hated seeing her like this she was and is so miserable she is 5 feet btw. I love her like crazy and this all made me mad. My Dr said if I had showed up with fecal matter in my water it would have been an emergency c-sec. What do yall think? Ive had 3 kids by the way and only once my epidural didnt work it was in wrong they actually messed up something my right leg still goes numb.
Dr only saw her once when she delivered.
Sorry for mistakes phone is acting up.
Can a Dr refuse a pricedure when he works for you? (the c-sec and the episiotomy)
My sister is still miserable (physically) but is doing very well with the baby. I never told my sister about malpractice or mistakes nothing I was waiting. My sister is currently not speaking to me, my mother either so my last update was 3 days ago. Thank you all so much for your replies I hope for no lasting effects for either mama or baby. I'm sure he is a sweetheart.
