Their explanation to us was the whole "just-in-case B's stuck" allopathic nightmare scenario...sigh
After knowing this policy, we changed the birth plan to make it as comfortable as we wanted it without getting lawyers involved...lol
We closely looked at their legal jargon (FIL is a lawyer) and found any spots we thought were kooky, and called them on it.
Birthplan - We very clearly specified items we cared about and made all the people who would be present read them. especially the peds team who would assist in the "resuscitation room" ugh.
others included: DH would always be with them, they would not be bathed ~ leave the vernix, no eye crap, no shots, nothing in their mouths and they would nurse IMMEDIATELY, my hands would not be tied down, I would not get any morphine or drugs that would enter breastmilk and no unexpected procedures would be performed without our consent on the boys or myself in the OR. They followed it. I tandem nursed the babies while they closed me up, much to the anesthesiologists dismay...hahaha.
so unfortunately, I had a csec due to transverse breech on both.
I still have grief over it, but that's just me...luckily I had whipped them all before going in. I was walking around within 3 hours, though.
Wave that birth plan around, whether you go to the OR or not.
Good Luck, Mama....it will all be fine!
