So here's the thing. What is all this testing about? Its so vague. GBS? does anyone have anything to say about GBS? If I test positive I have to have a 4 hour IV during Labor? Oh and If I refuse they (the Hospital) can keep my baby for 3 days? Even though they monitor the babe for 24 hours and I cant leave the hospital for 36. I don't know, I do not mean to be skeptical but what the heck did women do 20 years ago? or 10? I mean no wonder women choose to have their babies at home.
Has anyone seen the business of being born? I haven't watched it because Im sure it is depressing. But the concept is exposing how Dr.s and hospitals make so much money from childbirth and how its not about the mother's experience but about convenience for the care providers.
Ooh I think Im ranting. The thing is I want to believe that as a first time mother I will be guaranteed the most beautiful and memorable birth experience. And I want to believe that my caretakers are there to ensure this experience. Call me naive. But this is what Im looking for in this perhaps, once in a lifetime journey.
So I will believe that on the day this little beauty is born I will get to have it just as I want it.
