So my midwives scared the @#$& out of me at our last class, talking about what happens if you get transferred to the hospital. They thought they were being reassuring because mostly what they were saying is that they go with you and will generally still be the ones delivering and it'll be pretty close to the same as at the BC, just no nice big tub for birth (labor only). BUT, they also said essentially that the hospital OBs and nurses don't give a $^&@ about birth plans and won't really even read them, and if you end up with an OB delivering for any reason, "they'll just cut the cord" and that unless you happen to be there on a REALLY slow day, they take the baby to the nursery for two hours no matter what.
Now, these two issues are two of THE most important to me, and I'm getting all pre-stressed out and envisioning myself screaming through the whole pushing phase "IF YOU CUT MY CORD I WILL SUE YOU, #@Q$^*#&@^$!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" and kicking people in the shins and running down the hall with my baby to avoid them taking her away from me just because it's more convenient for them. OMG my blood is boiling just typing this.
ANYway, I know that this is not even definitely going to happen to me, but being armed with GOOD, SOLID defenses that are likely to work in the event that I do end up faced with these obstacles would make me feel a LOT better and less freaked out about the possibility. So, anyone been through similar fights and/or know good resources to help me get info on how to successfully fight these things if I need to?
