Fat American Women

When I was still on the fence about homebirth, I asked her why C -section rates are so high in America.

She then told me because American women are fat and then when asking her about water birth, she said its far too dangerous because I could slip when getting out of the tub and kill my baby.

After this appointment, she tried to get me to sign a paper stating I would pay the full total of all my prenatal visits plus a hospital birth at their affiliated hospital after I had told them Id be paying on a visit to visit basis.

When I refused to sign the paper she said, “well now you are out of my care and if you have an emergency at your homebirth, I cant help you”.

Absolutely the worst experience I’ve had with an OBGYN.
