hope this is in the right spot
I was just wondering how many women have heard of this and what do you think? Iatrogenic prematurity is basically doctor caused prematurity due to induction or csection for "convenience" of the mother or doctor and the 'due dates' being incorrect, resulting in a pre term or early baby needing special care.
I only just learned of this recently, didnt even know it had a name Personally I cannot understand convenience based inductions/csections at all, I think its selfish to remove a baby from their mother before the baby is ready and without any medical reason.
I have read of many babies who are born too early because of incorrect due dates and needing special care, its such a shame, just because the doctor will be on holiday or the mum is 'over being pregnant' or 'husband will be at work on the due date'
anyways, what do you think?
