Perhaps if hospital based staff were willing and trained to labor with women rather than manage birth than their would be a greater sense of trust of a hospital setting for mother's of twin, vbac and breech babies.
For an MD to tell a mother that she has no choice in her birth plan, that she must have a scheduled c section, makes her a patient being acted upon and not an active participant in the decision making process.
It is frightenening to put so much faith in professionals whom some have never seen a truly natural birth to decide whether or not you as a birthing mother are progressing "normally".
If MD's could worry more about the whole health of motherbaby than their insurance premiums we may have a maternal health system that served motherbaby patients with the care they truly deserve.
