So I was searching for something else and came across this thread called "My OB said what?!" So here was what one woman's OB said to her:
“I don’t know what the problem is with you moms. You want the whole neighborhood there. You want the room to smell a certain way. You want music playing. What’s it matter HOW the kid gets here? In the end you’re alive, baby is alive, that’s all that matters.” – OB to mother while discussing the mother’s birth wishes.
So another clever mom wrote this as one of her responses to a doctor like that (I LOVE this):
“The biological purpose of sex is reproduction. During sex, a man’s heart rate soars, blood pressure increases, respiration increases, it puts serious strain on the body and could result in a heart attack. Therefore, you should NEVER spend your honeymoon in a hotel, oh no, you should be in a hospital.
What’s that? You want dinner, flowers, and a sexy negligee? This is a hospital, not some brothel. This isn’t the dark ages, after all. You’ll be wearing hospital gowns just like everyone else. You brought in your own CD player so you could listen to Barry White? What next, twinkle lights and rose petals?
We’ll hook you up to a heart monitor and BP cuff, and start an IV just in case. If your heart rate gets too high, I’ll have to inject something into your IV to keep you safe. Why do you care what it is, I’m a doctor!
The nurse will measure your penis regularly. You can’t have intercourse until it’s fully erect. Oh, and there will be at least 7 people in the room watching during the actual act. Just in case.
What’s that? You can’t maintain an erection under these conditions? It’s been two hours, I can’t wait all night! You’re failure to progress. I’ll just use this needle to extract the sperm from your testicles and inject it directly into your wife’s uterus. Congratulations, she’s pregnant.
What’s that? You feel like less of a man? You wanted to actually experience sex? Quit complaining! Lots of men can’t have sex. All that matters is a healthy baby.”
