Im sorry you experienced a similar comment to me. Im still trying to get over the way she said it to me and DP. There was no concern in her voice it was more sarcastic and horrible than anything else. And she could have worded it a whole lot better. It was totally disrespectful to everyone who has ever lost a baby. So much for bedside manner!

Good luck OP, I really wish for you to get the outcome you are after. I am in tears reading all these posts as I am still very affected by my induction 6 months ago, i believe it was also the cause of the bonding issues I had with DS.
Though at the end of the day I am so grateful that DS is here safe and healthy, that even though it affects me emotionally so much still, I would have done anything at the time to up the odds of him being ok.

I thought those that have replied to my post may be interested in the bellow document, which clearly outlines my option of monitoring and ultrasound and my right to refusal. As you know from my post i was told i could not be monitored and there was no route other than induction. I am a low risk paitent with no complications other than being 6 day past my 'due date'. It appears some doctors dont read or follow the official state perinatal Practice guidelines. Needless to say i will be making a formal complaint to the hospital on Monday and asking that my medical record and care be transferred to a different hospital in adelaide. I will also be cancelling the induction. Thank you every one.

I refused induction and eventually only consented to having my waters broken at 42 weeks. The only reason I consented to that was because dh had been off work since 38 weeks and needed to go back. I was having monitoring every day, baby was fine, I was fine and I have a personal and family history of long gestation. After my water was broken, I didn't consent to any further intervention, in fact I went home and it took 18 hours for labour to spontaneously begin. Nobody can make you do anything OP. It's your choice and ultimately you are the one that has to live with the consequences. Be informed and do what you want.

My midwife was happy to let me go to 42 weeks and then from there the hospital would label me high risk (??) and it would be daily monitoring and shipped off to a hospital more equipped for 'high risk' but she would go with me which was reassuring.
She offered to do a membrane sweep at 40+4 as I was 3cm and soft so I agreed. Bub arrived 12 hours later after a 5 hour labour.
Hopefully you don't get to the stage of daily monitoring but if you do I hope you find a caregiver who will support you in your choice to wait.
Best of luck xx
