It will be all your fault

They said to me “your baby could die and it will be all your fault”, when I declined an induction at 41+3 weeks- I knew that their dates were wrong and I was in fact less than a week ‘overdue’.

I was eventually coerced into an induction (they lied to me about a CTG trace) which was a horrible, traumatic experience and my baby ended up in NICU because of it. I went on to have an incredible homebirth with my second baby at 42 weeks (my dates) on gas and air – he was 10lb 8oz and out in three ‘pushes’, no tears. I had to fight for it, but it was amazing and absolutely worth it.
