Talked to my friend about pond birth... - Page 6

post #101 of 112
I agree with Michelle. And, if it's true that you live in VA, I can tell you that it gets colder than 50' in the winter there.

It's just such a bizarre story that I have serious doubts it's true.

And I'm sceptical simply because if she was 16 weeks when the saga started, this baby's due late October/ early November. Which, whilst pretty cold, isn't really winter. So, if you want to do something, follow the advice given, pick up the phone and talk to a trained midwife in your area about what's going on.

Uh, did you see this post mzbuntz had:

"I live about 10 minutes from Sterling. I use to work there at an Urgent Care. There is a really hire demand for nurses in this area. Probably best to go through a medical temping agency to start."

Moving to Sterling, Va area from Florida--need help with housing

Hmm. No spring chicken here. Certainly might have an awful strong opinion about how much safer a hospital birth would be than those nutty, wacky, pond-scum loving chicken midwives. Hmm.

OMG! Busted!

Well, that should put an end to any speculation that she wasn't totally full of cr@p.

I would laugh, but now I'm kinda

What a !

How dare she?

Seriously....

She comes here with either A) a completely bogus story (most likely) or MAYBE B) a true or semi-true story which she KNOWS is horrific-- and then asks us "innocent" baiting questions for which she knows the answers...

Then she acts all indignant when we doubt her?



Aaaaaaarrrrrrrrgggggghhhhhh!

I came to MDC to get away from idjits like this!

So what happens now, that a troll amongst us has been discovered? Is she still allowed to post? (That is if she does not leave in shame on her own. )

I know this thread has been reported by multiple people, but yet it has remained...

I didn't totally follow what you meant so I may have misunderstood, but I've been repaired w/o numbing.
post #108 of 112
that "dr" Also misdiagnosed the degree of her tear, it was 3rd but she only got a 2nd degree repair. The "Dr" said "You wanted a natural delivery you get a natural repair" now this woman has a few fistulas and has been going through reconstructive surgery, and might not be able to birth vaginally ever again.

She posted the story, along with a warning about said "Dr" Lyster on the Case Against Circ board, So, "Dr" Lyster could have found out n blah blah blah. Since she is obviously anti-NCB as well from that statement she made.
post #109 of 112
So, wait, you think this person *is* Dr Lyster? I'm unclear, here.
post #110 of 112
I think it could be.

*starts Yoda Voice*
A troll, this person, most definitely is.

I've had a friend that was told this *exact* thing by a doc, being stitched up from a bad tear. No numbing agent at all. A horrible end to a traumatic birth.

Now I just wanted to comment that I can't believe you all are going back to this OPs other posts and *critiquing* them!! Copy and paste, links, the whole deal. If I were treated that way, I'd leave in a heartbeat. I'm sure some of my posts could be ripped to shreds and be made fun of. Troll or not, which you're not supposed to be labeling people here, btw--you just don't rip people apart like that.

I'm a bit irked, but I'll get over it...

Hope her friend finds a new, REAL mw...

I've got to say (with all due respect to Emily, the super-sensitive one) that I have really enjoyed this thread.

Someone who, from all evidence available most CERTAINLY meets the definition of a "troll", comes to MDC and starts baiting the readers.

Giving the OP the benefit of the doubt, the MDC readers start out by giving advice and offering suggestions.

OP's posts become increasingly difficult to believe.

Mamas from all over, using critical thinking and archival research, point out the holes/discrepancies/contradictions in OP's story.

One mama in particular (thank you, mmaramba! ) clearly outlines the problems with OP's posts for all (including OP) to see.



All in all, it was handled beautifully. The way I see it, there may be a LOT of readers here at MDC who are novices at the discussion board thang, and they may not have a lot of experience with trolls. This thread read like a training manual for dealing with them.
