How is the pit connected? Can't the patient turn it off, or pull out her IV?

T At another board I'm a regular on, which shall remain nameless, 5 out of the 6 women who have been induced (early, I might add, in all cases) ended up with c-sections. I'm one of the last left without a babe because I refuse to be induced-although it's been brought up at the last 2 appts. But I admit to being scared by the scare tactics, kwim? The stillbirth rates and all that, and you can bet the OB has brought them up.

I know alot of members roll their eyes at sentiment like that, but you are not me, and you have not had my births..
You do not live the lives of women who are told they have CPD.. Or a mis-shapen uterus.. If I didn't have such a VBAC supportive OB.. I would have had another c/s.. And it wouldn't have been neccesary.. I'm glad it was "avoidable" the 2nd and 3rd time..
I NEVER judge a woman for her birth... It does no good to tell someone after the fact.. Well you know.. You really didn't need to have a c/s..
If you felt you needed one, then you probably did..
Warm Squishy Feelings..

If an OB or a midwife with much experience in catching babies tells a woman she can't birth vaginally, well, if she is of lesser experience (esp first time Mama's) she's prob going to believe them, whether it is accurate or not. She'll forever doubt her ability to birth a babe vaginally. This affects every ASPECT of labour and delivery! A woman's state of mind and ability to relax are very important when giving birth and if you always have "The Doctor told me I couldn't do this" in the back of your mind, how can you relax?
