- L&D Nurse to mother during an induction.
“I thought I would let you know that we do not induce here unless absolutely necessary so no need to worry that we’ll be scheduling a cesarean. Your baby will come when it wants to come and needs those last few weeks in there!”

“It’s very dangerous to send you home with this advanced dilation…If you don’t allow me to induce you today, your baby may come so fast that it will fall out and die on the 30 minute drive back here and I would be reported and sued and in so much trouble. You have no idea how risky it is to walk around when your baby could come with very little warning.” – OB to mother.
