My OB said what?!?

Hey all! Have been lurking here lately. When Brittany posted about My OB Said What a long while back I submitted my OB's comment. It was posted on the 31st so thought I'd share the link:

Yeah, my (former) OB told me that I was sure to bleed out and die bc I'm a red head. Not kidding.

My dh just told him that I was still not taking his pills (he ordered oral pitocin for me to ingest post delivery bc I refused an IV)

Nice.

It worked out for the best bc that comment (among other things that happened prior) really assured me that it was best and that we HAD to transfer care even though I was pretty far along.

And it worked out perfectly.

Yes, people are getting quite heated in the comments. For people who frequent the site often, is that always the case?

Sometimes. Some comments seem to spark a lot more debate than others. Recently, there was one where the OB said something like "Birth is one of the most dangerous things a woman can do today" and the rather infamous anti-homebirth troll Doctor Amy showed up saying "Birth IS dangerous" and it got a bit ridiculous. There was a circumcision comment that got really crazy a while ago, too. A lot of the quotes just have a bunch of people saying "What a terrible thing to say," but on some of them you have all sorts of peole coming out of the woodwork...

I subscribe to the RSS feed in my blogger reading list, but I don't comment as much as I used to and sometimes I don't even read the comments anymore because I'd just rather avoid the drama.
