Sometimes its amusing and other times it is just plain sad... I thought I would share the website though so we can all read the things that some OB's, nurses or midwives may try to say to us during labor to get us to do things their way.
OMG there was another one were a med student told the mother if she switched positions for pushing that he wouldn't know where the baby was coming from!!! I thought that was funny but really sad... LOL
Some of the things medical professionals say to women to get them to do what they want are ridiculous.
If my OB said that to me with me delivering twins I would stick MIL on her. It happened to MIL with DH's twin and MIL can make anyone want to cry or be super pissed! Plus then I would request immediately another doctor.
"01CIf you"019d done what I told you to do, I wouldn"019t have had to hurt you. Next time read some different books and do what you"019re told."01D -OB, after birth, explaining to mother who refused an epidural, why it was necessary to cut a 3rd degree episiotomy.
If it were me, it would be a good thing for that OB that he were already in a hospital...
