So glad my midwives and OB were not like that. They did work with me on options for not going significantly overdue, but no crazy pressure or scare tactics!

this part cracked me up:

Uh oh… while we did the ultrasound we found out that your amniotic fluid is low, you have bursitis in your elbow and your placenta is made of ham.

but in all seriousness...in reality, situations like that suck!

So, in all seriousness, it's sad that it's so tongue in cheek true. But as a cartoon ROFL that is seriously funny!!! Love the part about the placenta being made of ham!!!

TFS, that cracked me up!

Sad that it is probably true but the cartoon is funny. Love the doc slowly turning into the big bad wolf!

OMG that killed me. It is sad how much of that is true (well save for the placenta being made of ham :ROFL:)

That's why I always caution VBAC mamas to not hire a doctor unless you've heard good things from another VBAC mama. Doctors can say they support VBAC, but only someone who's gone through the process with them can say whether they actually do.

Seriously and sadly enough I had a doctor actually tell me my uterus was going to explode and and we would have instantaneous death if I had a VBAC when I was preggo with Riley. It would have been funny if I wasn't so pissed off that he said something so misinformed!

A doctor actually used the word "explode"? Gee, doc, is that a medical term?

This is totally what I felt like would happen at my doctor. They "support" it but when I told them I was planning on going to the birth center my nurse actual said " Dr Mills is terrified of VBAC/rupture" ... uh.
