My cousins wife a few years back had complications during childbirth and they told her and her husband and family that she will die if not given a transfusion. 100%. She refused. They even took my cousin aside and said we can give her one and we wont say anything etc but he refused. She was discharged from hospital the next day. Many people arent aware of the complications that can can arise from transfusions also. Everything comes with a risk.

I've just finished reading the full thread and didn't realise when I wrote my post that you are a JW, Sothisislove. I think it really depends on the individual Hospital etc. The lady I spoke about in my post ended up having a vaginal birth (not a vbac) and was ok in the end, but she changed her mind from wanting an elective c.s to vaginal birth due to the hassle she received with the consent forms and her not willing to consent to a blood transfusion etc.

I can't edit my posts properly today for some reason, but I wanted to wish you all the best with your birth and know that it is totally normal to feel anxious about all the 'what ifs'. However, given that you have spoken with your Ob and also that you have been reassured that there will be alternatives to blood etc, it sounds as though you are on the same page with your health providers and wil be in good hands. All the very best!
