So the other thread has got me thinking (and I don't want to derail that one more than it has already been). If you had drugs in labor, were you fully informed of the risks i.e the cascade of intervention, fetal distress, poor sucking reflex etc etc? I was most definitely not informed for my first labor and I regret that now.
I think it is important to be able to discuss these things without it turning into a fight. The more women who know about the risks the better as far as I am concerned... I didn't even think to research this stuff when I was pregnant with my first, I thought everything would go to plan, but it didn't and I found myself accepting drugs and interventions that I had no idea about and was not informed about when it was happening
If we can't openly discuss this sort of stuff how are others supposed to know what to expect? How are we supposed to get it out there if we can't openly talk about it?
I understand this is an emotive topic and I hope we can keep it nice.
