“This is the size of a normal vaginal opening (gesturing), and THIS is the size it is when a baby’s passing through. Don’t you think your husband would rather you had a Cesarean?” -OB to mother prenatally.
“See, next time you’ll just get the epidural sooner.” -OB to mom who had planned to have a natural childbirth and ended up with an epidural after many hours of laboring unmedicated with an occiput posterior baby lodged on her tail bone.
The purpose of this site is to capture the crazy but true comments said to birthing women by doctors, midwives, doulas, lactation consultants, and childbirth educators when they are having their babies!
