You have rights - but your not an OB, you're not a Dr and you're not a midwife who is aware of all the information - if you think you're more qualified than a professional....
But sorry for upsetting anyone in this thread if that's what I've done - I wasn't aware that my opinion isn't welcome and that I can't have my own thoughts and feelings on things....
My nephew's birth was a negative experience for him and those around him because medical professionals made poor choices.
Yes we have rights, we have the right to make informed medical choices just like anyone else in hospital and just like anyone else we have the right to be involved in our medical treatment and we have the right to refuse treatment.
The only time i get upset by it is if someone tries to lessen the way i did it. If someone said to me "oh you should have had a csec" or "you shouldnt have made that call, the Drs are more experienced", that is what makes me angry.
I am non confrontational and I do feel bad if I've upset anyone seriously - I hate being upset about something I feel passionate about.
