This is almost a month late, but Ari Josiah was born 11/7, weighing 7 pounds, 14 ounces and measuring 21" long. I had a pretty fabulous, unmedicated birth with a wonderful birth partner and husband @ a hospital. Unforunately my OB was not on call at the time, so I was stuck with some other woman from the practice and she was HORRIBLE. So horrible, in fact, that I'm filing complaints against her with the hospital, the practice and the state. She made up her own ACoG guidelines (seriously), lied, was pissed that I refused an epidural ... just completely unsupportive. I'll post a birth story soon.
Those that are still waiting on their LOs, I hope they arrive soon!

I survived 16 mos! Ask me about breastfeeding a baby with posterior tongue tie, high palate, and weak oral motor skills- whew!
Way to stick it to that nasty HCP!

Ok, I read your story and I'm so upset at that horrible OB. I am so sorry you had to deal with such an awful human being. But despite such a negative presence, you managed to pull through and fight for what you wanted--an unmedicated birth. Good for you, and baby too!
What the heck--this woman must not be aware that childbirth pain medication is relatively new, and women have been giving birth for thousands of years without it. She acts like no woman has the ability to give birth without it. Terrible! I hope she is held accountable for her actions.

May I ask, what state are you in- and who the heck is the doc so that we can all steer clear!!!!!????????
Congrats to you!
