A year ago, tomorrow, I recieved an unauthorized cesarean section. The Obgyn knew I had plans to have a homebirth and that I was there for pain management for an unrelated issue. He insisted that I get a c-section because my daughter was breech even though I was not due for another month and the CPM that I train under is trained in breech births. This is also followed with the fact that I not only had a proven pelvis, but a previous sucessful breech birth. I also had a month left to go before she was due. I was in histarics over his idea and never consented. I was sedated through my IV against my will and woke up on the operating table. This has caused major depression over the past year, complications with my ability to finish my own midwifery schooling and has increased my risk of vaginal birth for future children.
I am having the hardest time finding a lawyer to take my case, which is causing me even more issues with my mental health. The closer we get to tomorrow, the more the panic attacks and tears come. I really need this closure. I have written them several times over the past year telling them how much they have hurt me. I am trying so hard to be happy.. it will be my baby girls birthday tomorrow and I can do nothing but cry when trying to even think about it.
I just need an attorney who will help me.
