Quote of the Day: Doctors Like Cesareans and Control

“She was very understanding of my fears,” Ms. Lincoln says. “I asked her which she preferred, natural delivery or elective Caesarean, and she told me she prefers the elective procedure because ‘I’m in control. Doctors like to be in control.’ “


-Emma Lincoln, two time maternal request c-section recipient

That article was absolutely horrifying!

"Some people in the medical community actually think it will be cheaper to increase the C-section rate. It sounds crazy, because the surgery stay is longer, but when you figure in the cost of going through labor and the 1-to-1 of nurses and patients, the difference is not quite as obvious."

And people are worried about the government making healthcare decisions for us? What about insurance companies that want to cut my baby out of me because its cheaper than providing me with quality care?

And I believe that will be today's 'quote of the day.'

Repulsive, no?

What a horrendous picture the article paints. Scary.
