Hi,<br>
I am a Labor and Delivery RN and I am currently pregnant (Due 8/7 <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> and i'm planning a homebirth. I wanted to let everyone know about the behavior of occuring at Wilkes-barre general hospital. A woman named Amber Marlowe went to that hospital to have her seventh child. Even though all of her other six childen had been "large", the doctors told her that she HAD to have a c-section. She checked herself out of the hospital, went to anouther one and delivered her 11 lb 6 oz baby naturally and without complication. Wilkes -barre general went to their lawyers and got a court order that if she went back there ( still pregnant) they could force her to have a surgical delivery and take custody of the child!!!<br><br>
I am outraged!!!!<br><br>
Please contact wilkes barre general hospital and let them know that this is taking away our right to do what we believe is best for us and our children is absolutely unacceptable!<br><br>

Ps. If you are pregnant and planning a delivery at wilkes barre general please reconsider. Maybe it will be your child that they try to take away next.
