Type of birth: induction leading to c-section

Why are you "here": I feel like my body failed. I feel like the drs decided what was best for my baby and that wasnt really what was best. I was scheduled to be induced at 41W 1 day. They refused to let us go past 41W even though there were no signs she was ready and everything was showing a perfectly healthy baby. We were induced and the midwife on duty broke my water when I was only 1cm, she also had them continuously turn up the pit drip which ended up with me having an hour long contraction which was doing nothing but making baby's stats flip out. I ended up having to get an epi (after preparing for a NCB) and that lead to progression but it was too late. I ended up needing an emergency c-section since her stats were all over the place.

One POSITIVE experience about your birth: I made it through the worst of the contractions without any meds!
