Good news that you've managed to change your consultant, that one sounds like a nutter! And I agree, she needs to be reported before she has the chance to do some harm to another woman and her child. I know plenty of people who will beleive anything a health professional tells them without question - this goes to show they don't always know best.
Hey, I have GD and a big bub atm... And all the MW I talk to about normal births (I have a back problem) are telling me to push for a Csection as it's our RIGHT to decide.. If consultant says anything state your going to put it in writing that you want a Csection to the hospital Director and if it doesn't come to pass and anything happens you will sue
That's what all the MW's I've seen have told me to do..
It doesn't sound nice but hey if it's what you want.. YOUR the one having the baby and YOUR the one that will be hurt and upset in the long run if anything happens.. So go with your gut instinct.. And if a letter is hard demand to see the Director with lawyers.. That'll get there attention, it sounds harsh but YOU need to take care of YOU
I'm seeing my Dr next week re a c section... Which he wont do either..
i had a scan yesterday at 36 weeks and my LO is weighing nearly 8lbs already so i now have to take bloods 3 times a day to check if ive developed diabetes since my negative GTT!
she did mention the shoulder thing to me as an issue but also said it was uncommon and not to worry as there will be Drs there on hand to help the delivery if this happens. she said if i have developed diabetes they will more likely do a section but wont know much more until the other scan in 2 weeks time
hope you get consultants changed, it really makes a difference the way they talk to you x
