You're right, that doesn't surprise me at all. I don't want to go into the whole awful story, but a civilian once threatened to put my husband in the brig when we disagreed with our pediatrician and refused a medical procedure on my DD. And this wasn't even someone who worked for the military. I just lay low about my choices with the military people. I don't see any military doctors while I'm pregnant, and I don't take my kids to military pediatricians because we've had so many bad/threatening experiences. I've just managed to avoid them over birth choices because every time I've been pregnant I got out of military healthcare before the birth.
Thankfully, this girl has a great mind of her own and, as soon as I told her that NO ONE can decide how she gives birth, she decided on a midwife assisted birth!!!
