Still processing this past week

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

I went into labor on my own again, made it to 9 cms & still end up with a c-section. I know the section was necessary since Lili was breech, but everything still feels wrong to me.  Since I had, had a UP & was planning a UC I was treated like total garbage from the time we got to the hospital till the time we left. I ended up with the OB on call and she was the biggest witch on the planet the entire time trying to tell me that the only 'safe' way to deliver Lili even if she wasn't breech was laying flat on my back and if I didn't do what SHE wanted then it was refusal of care. I was bullied into every single thing.

That's awful.  I'm so sorry you did not get to have the birth experience you had hoped for.  Even if a section was necessary there is no reason to treat you like that....  ((hugs))

Yuck. That sounds horrible. I also had a mean nurse at first, but we were able to switch her out.

My issue wasn't so much the nurses except a couple, it was the OB on call. As soon as she found out that I had no prenatal care since we had been doing a UP she went to b*tch mode. I was not able to lay flat on my back due to being in active labor and already at 9 cms. When I said that I would not be able to lay flat on my back to deliver the baby she then started the crap about it being the only safe way for Lili to be born blah blah and if I didn't do what she wanted then it was refusal of care.

I also did a UP and my babe was breech (ended up w/an unplanned UC too), I thought breech was more accepted now, even at hospitals? So sad how they treat people...and I'm sure they didn't mention anything about your baby being healthy "in spite" of being a UP!

I was ok with the c/s since she was pretty big, My major issue is how I was treated when I got there and after really. There are a lot of details that I need to get out, I'm just not ready yet.
