My OB said WHAT?!?

http://myobsaidwhat.com/

Pretty (un)shocking, inappropriate, and downright disrespectful things medical professionals say to their OB/GYN patients.

yeah, I'm subscribed to it on my blogger reading list. If you see any comments from "Birth Unplugged," that's me Smile

Mindie, did you see the one about scheduling a tubal? I found that one really offensive. And a while ago, there was "I had to cut an episiotomy for the placenta"...

Yep, I wonder what Dr. God would think about me, Mrs Grand Multigravida, Multiparous soon to be Grand Multiparous?

And that must have been one huge, bone-filled placenta. Also, wasn't the descriptive word "disgusting" in that post?

That just gets me all pissed. Not so much b/c of what the doctors/nurses believe to be best, but b/c of the way they speak to their patients. There are much more tactful and respectful ways to communicate.

yeah, I thought you'd understand how inappropriate that one was Smile

and there was a different one where an OB called a placenta "disgusting"

Brittany, did they ever publish the gravity comment you submitted?

no, but I found a very similar one in the archives...I wonder if she and I had the same OB? I later submitted a few other gems from that OB, but haven't gotten notification that any of the submissions were accepted.

I submitted mine about the OB saying "when you're bleeding to death is a really bad time to place an IV" but never heard from them either.

Apparently they have a pretty big back log of stupid comments.
