Hi ladies! I know I don't post often but I'm here everyday. I will try to keep this short.
Essentially, I feel like giving up on the natural birth in the hospital thing. I'm feeling very discouraged especially after the recent Scrubs magazine/FB craziness where L&D nurses were asked about the most ridiculous birth plans they have seen and there was tons of patient bashing...blah blah. Sorry I can't make it clicky but if you want to read some of the drama go here and look for a post from Thursday: https://www.facebook.com/scrubsmagazine?fref=ts
Anyway, I feel like having a doula (which I do) and having a birth plan (even though it is NOT nuts) is going to automatically get me ridiculed by the staff and fast track us to C/S land. Please tell me this is just because I just inundated myself with one side of the NB in hospital story. I am terribly afraid now that my DH and doula and I will have to fight against every intervention. I am afraid I will flip out and b*&$h out the staff makign things worse (and ruin all the hypobabies study I've done).
Yeah, ok I tried to keep that short. Anyone feel like reassuring me that I am overreacting and the birth plan and doula are the best things I could have done and that things will be fine?
