Do obstetricians set some birthing mothers up to fail?
Some private obstetricians in Australia are charging $2,000.00 up front to look after a client throughout her pregnancy.
I feel some totally turn it into a medical model and not a natural process: eg, suggesting induction when it is not clearly needed
I wish we could educate pregnant mothers more and encourage them to read and watch DVDs on a more natural way to give birth and questions that need asking
I have noticed some intelligent pregnant mothers just don’t question their Obstetricians views
I have purchased a DVD called The Face of Birth, an Australian documentary about pregnancy, childbirth and the power of choice.
I recommend this DVD to anyone interested in child birth, those thinking of having a baby, midwives and anyone else who is just saddened by our maternity system in Australia.
