Quoting Youlanda Douros:" So my obgyn stripped my membranes and didn't ask me or my husband or anything!!!! I've been to l&d three ... [snip!] ... full term but to me I wanted him to bake as long as possible. I'm just worn out and frustrated. ;( sorry just had to vent. ;("
I'm sorry! But I completely feel you and agree with you on the consent because it happened to my with my first son in 2007! I thought I was just going in and getting a routine cervical check,she sticks her finger in me and owwwie! I backed all the way up the bed and she pulled her fingers out and there was a small amount of blood on her gloves finger tip..I'm thinking wtf! And then I feel some cramping!! AND THENNN she decides to explain what she did!!! And I was extremely upset because She should have explained ahead of time and asked my opinion and consent! I would have agreed to in in my case,I was dilated to 3cm 80% effaced and head was down so low all I felt was a tremendous amount of pressure on my pelvis like he was going to fall out. A day and a half later my water broke at 2am...he was born at 2:06pm. I think it is completely disrespectful towards the mother when a doctor just does what they want and don't even think of the mothers feelings about it!
