But for every sad story like this there are lots on the other end of the spectrum where they are responsible. When I woke from my GA the anesthetist met me in my room. In hindsight he knew he had stuffed up and was smoothing things out. he told me I felt the surgery bc I had thick spinal cord muscles and the anesthetic had only seeped partially thru. For a time I actually believed him, him being the expert and all.
It wasn't until I joined ICAN, an international group dealing primarily with women who have had traumatic c/s, that I come across many women with the same issue. I started reading, and I didn't like what I read. Then about 3 weeks off my due date with DS I saw another anesthetist for another c/s. He reviewed my records and I told him my story. He said the thick spinal muscles excuse was quote "rubbish" and the cause was quite simply not enough anesthetic. So for my c/s he gave me the right dose, and guess what, despite being sedated, i felt nothing I also had no retained membranes, and I got given dis solvable internal stitches rather than external cotton stitches that were ripped out. So this time the ob actually did a proper job as well.
Drs and obs aren't gods. We need to stop treating them as if they were and start seeing that yes, they are learned, but they make mistakes.

How do you "not care" how another person gives birth at the same time as feeling unsupportive of it? Feeling supportive or unsupportive of something shows some level of caring.

Believe it or not I at least partially made peace with it, it's when these type of threads come up it drags it up again... and I'm not saying we shouldn't be having these discussions to save my feelings, i think it's a very important topic that women should discuss.
I know not all obs and medical staff are bad. As I said earlier, my 2nd ob is the bomb, totally brilliant surgeon that is low intervention, hands off and is not c/s happy. I would trust him with a 3rd birth no issue.
But I think some show blind questioning, that's maybe bad wording but i think ykwim.

A baby dying of uterine rupture is also so rare there are no reported cases in Victoria. Where did your friend give birth? And I'd question whether this was the cause and whether you know the full details.
