I just found this website of unbelieveable quotes from OBs, nurses, and midwives.

"On second thought, looking at your face I think we should do a rush

When I told my OB I was planning on an unmed birth, she said everyone says that, but when the contractions started I'd change my mind. She also said no one ever died from the pain, unless they jumped out the window to stop it.
Second time around we decided on a m/w but had gone to the OB at first because I had signs of ectopic. My DH asked the nurse about the mw practices in our area. She went in and on about being in a hospital because of unexpected complications. I told her I would consider a homebirth if DH would, and she says, "Homeborths are just dangerous. Why do you think nineteenth century cemeteries have so many babies in them?" Boy was it a nice change to have midwives, LOL.
