I'm 33 weeks pregnant with baby #4 and I'm wanting to get my tubes tied. (Please don't tell me horror stories of post tubal syndrome or whatever it's called.) I told my ob that I wanted to get it done after this baby was born and he said I have to come back 6 weeks after birth to get it done. I asked why couldn't I get I done the day after birth and he said the hospital deemed it "barbaric". That made no sense to me. I figured the uterus and tubes were still all swollen up and easier to reach that way and in 6 weeks they would be much farther down in my pelvis.
Has anyone ever heard of this happening?
