A woman in Ventura County, CA a few years ago sued her doctor for doing a Caesarean Section. The reason given was that it was not entirely necessary to do that surgery, and it complicated her future reproductive and gynecological life. She lost. There was no real permanent damage to her or her baby, as far as the court could determine.

It's hard to sue a doctor. You sometimes have to go out of state to find a lawyer who will take the case, and if you can't afford a laywer, it's not the kind of thing they will do pro bono.

A parade of medical folks came in and did their damndest to convince me that "as long as the baby is healty, that's all that matters."

I understand the reason behind saying women need to sue doctors for overusing interventions but, I think the litigious attitude of so many is part of the reason the docs use more and more interventions. .

I agree with Omegamama!
Use the Nancy Reagan method to get Natural Chldbirth in a Hospital.
Just say, "NO " to the first intervention.
The problem though is often the first intervention is the EFM which is a requirement by all hospitals and their insurance companies. Being confined to your bed is not good for a healthy laboring woman.
Furthermore, actually, the very first intervention for most healthy laboring mothers is the trip to the hospital itself.
