What position were you in to begin with? Did they try the Gaskin maneuver before pulling? How long was she stuck for? I think if the doctor could get her out with a little tugging, manually, in lithotomy, that's not a true case of dystocia. Just "sticky shoulders." Also, the weight of the baby isn't the main thing. Fat is squishy. It's about the size of the head vs. shoulders.
