    Tell them you're allergic. Theyll put a band on your arm and it'll be illegal to give you pethadine.

    Just ask to see the Nurse Unit Manager. She / he is the boss. No nurse likes a patient asking to see their boss. She is suppose to be your advocate. Good luck.

    Hire a doula, they're not for natural hippy births, they're there to advocate for what you want whatever that is.

    Can't stand horrible midwives. Write a birth plan and make sure your support person can speak for you, just stay firm. Being your 3rd they'd assume you know what the deal is with the drugs!!

    Bring it up in appointments before the birth and get it written on your notes.

    This.

    Start talking to care provider now. Explain that how you felt pushed and how the drug negatively affected you.
    Ask them to write it on your notes. Ask the ob to sign it.

    Definitely get it put in your notes.

    It's not standard procedure as far as I know. SIL has gas, then epi with each baby (and she's had 7!). She has never had pethidine.

    From your first midwife app, tell them about your first 2 make sure they put it in your file. If need be tell them you are allergic to the peth. I hope this helps good luck
