Ive been watching a lot of American reality shows lately and there are a few things that stand out that I have seen
The care providers in the us promote epidurals like everyone needs them.
Most of the births ive seen the lady is on her back with her legs in stirrups and they aren't give the option of another...
With ivf doctors are more willing to transfer 2 at a time.
Has anyone else found this??
Anything you have noticed ??

All the women in labour have ivs in their hands? My hospy doesnt do this.
With ivf alot of Aus Drs will do double transfers but America seem to be happier to do alot more transfers!!!!! I have seen up to 5 embies transferred!!!

I am soooo glad I am not the only one! I watch the show one born every minute & all the women have epis! What I can't understand is that they are able to still feel the pain!? What's the point? When I had mine I couldn't feel a thing let alone move my legs.

From watching OBEM it seems that a lot of women are booked in for an induction as well.

Ohh good point! I was watching teen mom and a girl wasnt even at her due date and they were pushing an induction "because they don't like babies going over"

Birth in the U.S. is apparently very medicalised. There is a documentary called "The business of being born" (produced by Ricki Lake) which apparently reflects it pretty accurately. Lots of intervention, not a lot of natural births.

I suspect the fact that the US being such a litigious country would have a lot of drs feeling the need to manage birth, but unfortunately it seems to be managed too much.
