What a terrible experience, I can't imagine how traumatized she actually felt.
It is very sad that this continues to happen to women; however, makes me glad to have done all my research, educating myself on my choices and stood my ground on my decisions. I'm very grateful to have had such good birthing experiences with my last 2 children. Luckily for me, since my 1st was a terrible experience, I used that to change my future experiences.

This kind of reminds me of a story a woman I work with had with her daughter - only child due to her experience. Every time she asked a question the nurses would tell her "you'll find out what it is later" and because she kept on and on they ended up "knocking her out" with some sort of medication and she woke up and they had performed a c section on her. Granted this was back in the 70's, still a horrifying story.

Thanks, Jaidynsmum, for the beautiful siggy!
