I' watching Baby Story on Discovery Health and a woman on there had a cesarean for her last baby and is sitting talking to the camera as she awaits her turn in the operating room for her scheduled repeat cesarean.
She is sitting there crying about how she tried to conceive again - tried for 4 years - and had two miscarriages along the way. You know no one told her that these things could very well have happened because of the first cesarean (which seemed warranted). But, the woman should know why she struggled for so long, don't you think? Annoying.
I keep hearing the announcers on these baby shows call a version an "aversion." It makes me laugh and sigh all at the same time. Who are the editors?
There is nothing worse than hearing a woman say, "There's really no choice for me right now," when she isn't even in labor yet. sigh Very sad.
Off to do prenatals all day along with readying my birth kit for an upcoming birth and its trip to New Orleans "just in case" the doula client I am visiting delivers precipitously at home.
We're also going through all the charts and re-organizing them (updating them). We're also adding new VBAC consents and a general consent for remaining in midwifery care despite my recommending they move on to an OB.
This is a whole discussion on its own. I will tackle that next.
