Doctors never make selfish choices…. right?
Today much to my horror I got the chance to read the thoughts of a Mom who is proudly attacking other mothers who choose to fight for a vaginal birth after c-section. She basically said she will trust someone with more degrees than she has and never question their medical advice or motive. She basically said that doctors never do c-sections or rush births to make it to a golf game or for money. We know that isn’t true though right? Maybe she is a new mom and has yet to year the experiences of other Moms like me. Maybe she needs to tell herself that to feel safe?
Birthing has been turned into a business!
Just because someone has more degrees in something doesn’t mean they are automatically doing what is in my and babies best interest. We know for a fact some doctors will rush things because they have a golf game, I have experienced it first hand. I have seen hospital policy used like a weapon against laboring women with no current scientific evidence to back it up. We can’t be sheeple about this and pretend the medical community is not a for profit industry!
Don’t get me wrong, I don’t personally think my doctor is going to shaft me because of any selfish needs but I will be prepared in case I get the classic “baby is too big” or “It is policy to have a c-section after 24 hours” and such. I will not blindly just trust. Do we blindly just trust anyone we hire for services? How is this different? Why am I the bad guy for wanting the best for my baby and I and not being blind to the fact that others have needs they put before my own? Some people are jerks, even doctors can be!
