Can you hear the screams of outrage from there????

The unbelievable story of a jackass ob/gyn who gave a woman an episiotomy AFTER THE BABY WAS BORN, just because she'd had the audacity not to need one for the actual delivery. I hope that jerk got the pants sued off him/her.

Oh yeah, our midwives in Scotland told us they did that back in the day. Then the woman didn't need one, they'd give them one after the birth anyway! Because it was routine. Shocking.

EEKKk!!!!!!! I think the idea of a episiotomy scares me even more than another Cesarean. :( That doctor is a sick sadistic butcher and should have someone take a knife to his ASS next time he needs to poop..."cuz that'll never come out on its own!" Sick!

Ugh! How could he in good conscience do that?!

LOL, Jill. That's EXACTLY how I feel :) I ranted and raved to J for about 15 minutes, spluttering with impotent rage!

Good question, Buckaroomama. I wonder the same thing.

Niecey, I can hardly believe that!

Oh NO he di'int! That is WAY beyond wrong. I am not someone who thinks a lawsuit should be filed for every little thing, but someone needs to stop that monster!!! What business is her sex life to him? What a horrible thing to say and to do when she was both physically and emotionally vulnerable. I'd like to say I would have verbally punched his lights out, but remembering how dazed and confused I was right after both my births (granted, in both cases I had been awake a LONG time), I probably wouldn't have had the wherewithal. So I guess he would have gotten a very angry phone call from me a couple of days later! I really hope that poor woman has recovered from both the physical and emotional scars that must have left!!

And I totally agree with Jill!!!

Honestly, where are people's brains? That's absurd! Just one more fact that legitimizes my doctor phobia!
