Default Re: C-Sections without the woman's consent

Most of the time babies arrive without too many problems but sometimes there are issues and bad outcomes even when the OB's and midwives do everything right. I am not familiar with c/s's being performed without written consent except maybe in emergency situations when 2 lives hang in the balance. Nasty behavior by medical personnel is not good but some may have valid reasons for not wanting to do VBACs. A tragic outcome can be compounded when the team of lawyers begin their work. C-Section rates approach 40% in some states and higher in certain areas and hospitals. The reason is the practice of defensive obstetric medicine.
