yup and use scare tactics to force you into a c-section. Telling you that the baby is in distress and that they baby is having heart dysrhythmias. And the your decelerating. All this stuff that would make a mother freak out. Im having my baby at a jewish hospital because they prefer natural birth to c-sections.

doctors these days rush to give c-sections.
less liability for them if something goes wrong.
Alladis is the truth. I went in on a Monday morning for a ultrasound
and by noon, they'd told me that they were keeping me and inducing
labor because they felt my amniotic fluid was too low. I was 38 weeks, 5
To initiate dilation, they placed some type of apparatus (cervidil) up close to my cervix. After a full day, no dilation.
Day two, Cervidil and Pitocin was started. Contractions throughout the night every 5 minutes, but no dilation.
Three: Dilated only 2 cm. They used the scare tactic that it was best
to get the baby out of there, my amniotic fluid was low and therefore,
they broke my water. Contractions got worst. 1 hour later, the same 2cm. They used the scare tactic that now my baby's heartrate was slowing
down and I had to have an urgent c-section. I bout lost my damn mind
and tried to get off the table when they put the oxygen on my face.
yeah, I don't think my fluid was low. About two days prior, he had
shifted which made walking really painful. I think that because he was
moving downward, they just wasn't measuring right. I wish I would have
had him full term and my body given a chance to go into labor when
ready. He is my first and usually with the first child, sometimes labor don't
occur until after the due date. My body wasn't ready to have him and I
feel I was forced into an induction and had no other option but have a
c-section when I wouldn't dilate. The next time around, I want a VBAC.
I feel that there should be enough space in between the birth of my son
and the birth of my next child (whenever that will be) to lower the
risk of uterine rupture.
