Funny you mention - I had a dream the other night that they made me go to the hospital to put the baby back in so I could give birth in a hospital. I was so upset - I kept reminding myself in the dream "I can refuse anything" lol. I gave birth, and was fighting them screaming "NO PITOCIN" lol.

Im not more scared of them in general, i was very wary of them to begin with having been a doula... I really just didnt want to have to fight them on a day that was supposed to be so special and memorablee. I didnt want one of my biggest memories of the day I gave birth to be how I fought the nurses off & dodged the pitocin (which looking back, they would have surely given me & also loking back it would have surely ended up poorly b/c of how my labor was).

So... I woudlnt want to do it in a hospital unless I had no other choice, and I wouldnt be afriad of it in a transport situation b/c then Id feel comfortable knowing that a lot of the interventions would be done out of true necessity. Not just someone else's necessity (to get on to the next patient or their golf game lol).
