What a difference the care provider makes!

One of my “blog buddies” just had her second baby by C-section. She believes her first was an unnecessarian (or, at least, that it could have been avoided had her care been different leading up to the Cesarean), so she opted for an HBAC, and ultimately went to the hospital for a repeat C-section (after days of labor and hours of pushing). I’m linking to this post (warning — has profanity!), because she contrasts her experience of being an attempted HBAC transfer to the hospital, with that of a friend of hers. She had a pretty good experience — the nurses were nice, the doctor was nice; but her friend had a horrible experience — was demeaned, threatened, etc., for having attempted an HBAC. Same hospital; different doctors, different nurses. Astounding.
