“You’re just awesome!!” -L&D Staff during mother’s first labor (having a VBAC.)
The OB and nurses were amazingly sweet and supportive.
“We’ll check her vitals again at shift change in 3 hours” L&D nurse to a husband who watched his wife drop a plastic fork and pass out. He grabbed another nurse and dragged her into the room for help. Mother’s blood pressure had bottomed out and she was crashing as a result of being given a medication used to lower blood pressure to stop pre-term contractions.
From this article:
This is what the hospital spokeswoman said to the reporter when asked about birth plans:
“Generally the mother agrees with the doctor. In the rare case that she doesn’t, there is a line of authority to override the mother’s wishes, but again, that’s unusual”- Hospital Spokesperson to reporter when asked about birth plans.
Intermountain Health Care is the company that owns both the hospital and the infamous Aspen Women’s Clinic where “The Sign” is posted.
