I had an epi without consent also. I didn't even realize what she was doing until I felt the cutting. I never should have signed the general consent form at the hospital. It lead to a lot of procedures done without asking me first.
After I received the bill for the "surgery" I realized why sOB's do them. $3000 for a quick cut and 20 minutes of stitching.
OMG! I had one but had no bill like that! (mine was consented because the baby's head was stuck half way out for 30 minutes and her hr was dropping. The midwife gave me an opportunity to try harder, which I did and it didn't do anything)
