It was distressing to read of a Chicago’s women’s birth experience in which she was verbally abused by an OB during her birth.
I know that these things do happen during birth. I have seen it as a doula though to a much lesser extent. Part of the problem is that even if you have an OB you trust, you may end up with someone else at the birth. Often with little choice of who it is.
The only solution I can think of to this is a very small practice with one or two care providers. Or a homebirth where you are CERTAIN of who will be in your space as you birth.
I feel for this women who suffered during her birth. No one should have to experience that.
