Re: mandatory cesarean

So you are saying that it's good to do your own research but you admit that you didn't do that yourself. You just listened to your doctor. You claim there is misinformation out there but you don't...

Yep ~ I have 1 friend who vaginally birthed a 9lb 12oz baby who said that women are having all these c-sections because they don't know how to push.

The wife of one of my dh's friends was going on...

Re: Introduction + TriCare questions

Tricare doesn't care about what kind of birth you have (from a homebirth to a planned c-section)! That's between you and the doctor.... which is actually the issue I'd be more concerned about. ...

Re: Completely Horrified

Re: Repeat Cesarean Criticism

There are a couple issues at play in the ERCS vs VBAC "debate."

Re: Do you ever feel embarassed about having a c/s?

Re: VBAC abd the new healthcare bill

Because having Medicaid doesn't stop someone from suing. Lawyers would be more than happy to represent a mom whose baby died as a result of a VBAC and not charge her until the lawsuit was settled...

Re: What is your take on Obama for CPMs?

Re: VBAC abd the new healthcare bill

But if it's truly a life-threatening emergency, they may not have time to play around with the epidural anyway. If they need to get the baby out in minutes, they may still need to knock you out. :(...
