omimouse: ('Concerned Citizens')
Having read through several horror stories of women who were *horribly* mistreated by their doctors while in labour . . .

Yeeeeeeah, I'm looking into local midwives, thankyouverymuch. I might not care for some of the overt fluffiness, but right now, I'll take the assurances that I won't have procedures I don't actually need rammed down my throat on pain of loosing custody of my baby if I don't comply.

And yes, there is at least one woman who had her child taken away because she refused to blanket consent to a c-section when there was no sign whatsoever that she would even *need* one.

I'm gonna go hide under my blankets and remind myself that I want children very badly, but fucking hell, I am going to pick out where I give birth *very* carefully indeed. Well, at least as carefully as I can.

This is so not helping the panic attacks.
