Alegria, the statute of limitations varies by state. Here is a site I found. http://www.medical-malpractice-lawye...lpractice.html
so you can look yours up. In NY, it's 2 1/2 yrs, so that opportunity is lost to me now.
FrumDoula: You are a total kick-ass warrior. I wish I knew about this site back in '99. I'm saving this list you put together. It's too late for me, but I think it's a pretty safe bet I'll run into another woman who felt mugged by her c-sec, instead of rescued. I know this might not make any sense, but you have no idea how validating it is to read about my fears coming true with someone else. I never said out loud before how much I was afraid of having them take my baby away. It sounds crazy and paranoid, but now, reasonable as well. Only dh and 2 of our closest friends even know the whole story. He was subject to all the manipulations and deceptions that I was. I don't think I have to describe what a grenade that diagnosis of herpes was, lobbed into our new marriage. Thankfully, we never lost faith in each other, and reallly, only we know what a total vindication that negative herpes culture turned out to be. When I decided to go for an HBAC, he was behind me 100%. Feeling very wam and lovey toward dh right now. He's sound asleep and I should be too.
