What are some that youve heard?

I had a doula client one time whose OB told her that she didnt like to delay cord clamping because if they did, then the baby might get too much blood from her (the mother) and that it would cause the mother to bleed out too much & might need a transfusion.



I was shocked, since its basic human anatomy that the cord blood doesnt come from the mother, but rather the placenta. In fact, the mother & baby NEVER share blood, and the baby has their very own blood type, completely its own from very early on. Even in the placenta, the mothers blood & the babys blood never ever mix or cross.

I couldnt believe my ears when she said that!

"squatting is the most unnatural position to birth in - I mean, how can you do that when you are numb?!"

"A woman's digestive tract stops when she is laboring, that is why she doesn't need to eat in labor and why she doesn't usually need to pee when she gets further into labor"

"My doctor told me that I would have as many stitches for my elective c-section as a first time mom always does from her episiotomy"

A Lady at my wortk today was talking about giving birth to her twins and she said the first ob she went to said "All twins must be delivered by C-Section. There is no way twins can be delivered vaginally" She promptly found another OB
