“If you think you want to experience unnecessary pain for fun, you just need to do more research.”- OB said to 20 wk mom-to-be when she mentioned not wanting an epidural. Mother changed to a CNM after that visit.
“I’m going to go home to have a nice dinner after this. Steak! Mmmm…” -OB to mother, while seated between her legs with mother in lithotomy position waiting for nurse to enter the room before pushing her baby out.
“Wait! Don’t push! We’re not ready!” -OB to mother after breaking her water at 8cm, in order to “speed things up” after mother was at the hospital only two hours. Mother immediately was pushing out her baby!
