[QUOTE=Hesperia;13505018]Take your time to heal the birth, emotionally and physically. Sounds like it was very difficult. I love that we have a safe place here to get mad and feel safe about it.

I also love that I can come here and find understanding without having to get into long explanations or be judged for daring to think that there's more to birth than just a live baby.

Can you PM me the name of the OB if you know it? I'd love the info for our tribe. I won't be posting publicly though.

Good heavens. I'm so sorry about your experience with that OB. I was literally cringing through most of your story I agree with the PPs, I'd file a complaint against that doctor.

Congrats on the new babe!

I am so sorry you were mistreated.

Your son is so beautiful!

Peaceful mama to three blissfully-birthed and incredible small people: dd10, dd7 and ds5. Always awed and so thankful to be a midwife.

Wow I admire you I was at home w/ lots of support and still needed encouragement and careful/slow talking. I can't imagine I would have even tried to put up a fight in that situation. You are brave.

not saying i agree with him doing that (I don't) but it is done in hospitals sometimes. (maybe homebirth,s I don't know... never seen it done in one)
Yeah...through watching countless birthing videos with DD everyday i've seen this done once at the hospital and once at a home birth. The midwife muttered something about "trying to remedy the very tight space." I cannot imagine how uncomfortable it would feel though.

Blessed with two BEAUTIFUL little girls: Kylie (09/06) and Maggie (4/09) :
