I am wondering, because I have received some hate emails saying I handled this wrong. Basically, when I was in labor, I called my OB, who I had seen the day before but sent me home as I was only at a zero, but I got the on-call OB. The on-call OB told me my contractions were too far apart for it to be real labor so she would not admit me or allow me to be admitted, nor would she allow my regular OB to be called. I begged and pleaded with her to please check me out or at least call my regular OB because I am a vbac and he assured me he would be called if I went in to labor and she was nasty and abusive toward me. The conversation ended with her telling me to jump off a bridge.
The question is, if the OB flat out told you she would not allow you to be admitted if you showed up because your contractions were too far apart, would you still try to go to that labor and delivery, or would you go on to a different hospital? In our case, we called to the labor and delivery and see if they could call someone else if we came in and they said no, they had to do what the on-call doctor said and if the on-call doctor refused to allow me to be admitted then that is just how it is. SO, we went on to a different hospital where I had the baby shortly after (via c-sect). Now I have gotten hate emails from people who were on the Ican group saying this is my own fault, I got what I deserved, I should have just gone in to the labor and delivery with the on-call doctor. My dh and I both think that would have been a complete waste of our time and energy and would be taking risks with the baby since I was in so much pain and the on-call doctor informed us over the phone she would not allow me to be admitted or even examined. What do you think? Would you have continued on to that labor and delivery knowing you were going to be turned away..or would you have gone elsewhere?
