I don't know what you're feeling here, I imagine quite fed-up with the fight to get your birth but please don't give up. Flame the hell out of me for saying it but a healthy baby is not the *only* thing that matters. Not having an incision site matters, how you feel about your birth matters, your rights matter, your wants matter and YOU MATTER.

Please don't let an insurance company dictate your birth to you. They have no right. If you want a natural birth go in there and tell that doctor that he doesn't even remotely have a choice. I'm rooting for you!
