    Refusal to deliver in the safest way possible for the child would, in my opinion, be a child protective services issue.

    And just why, pray tell, would any of this be grounds to SUE???

    Go to another hospital, for God's sake.
    As pointed out numerous times, the only person likely to be hurt (although the CDC figures show that assumption to be untrue) is the woman and her birthing organs, not the child.

    I think a hospital threatening inappropriate legal action against a person, whether it occurs or not, is a worthy of a lawsuit.

    Reporting someone to child protective services is not legal action. And the report, in this case, would not be inappropriate.

    Have you ever been on the receiving end of a report to child protective services? I know a person who was, and you clearly don't have a clue as to how that goes. First things first, they come and take your children, then they decide if they should give them back.

    Now that I'm un-plumbed, I've not seen a doc since the plumbing was removed, and don't intend to. From here on out I'll live and die by whatever happens to me without medical treatments. I mean if I break a leg, okay, I'll get it casted, but no more surgeries, none. I've had it with the whole business.
    And then they have the nerve to want to get all pissy about the number of women who are ditching hospitals entirely and opting for midwives or birthing centers instead.

    Go figure.

    there are some midwives or birthing centers that will not do the same thing. the risk to mother and baby is to great for them to risk the liability.

    Not do what? Surgical interventions?

    Well... Yea. That's kind of the whole point of going to those kinds of care providers for a lot of people.

    There is potential risk to the child. Vaginal Birth after Caesarean Section
    A C-Section leaves a scar on the uterus. This is a weak area and can tear during labour. This is called a uterine rupture. If this occurs you would require an emergency C-section. You could need a blood transfusion or a hysterectomy and the baby could be harmed.
    Uterine Rupture: What Family Physicians Need to Know - American Family Physician
    Neonatal outcome after uterine rupture depends largely on the speed with which surgical rescue is carried out. Much of the published literature comes from large medical centers, where in-house physicians and support facilities are available for emergency surgery at any time.1,17 Even in such centers, newborn morbidity and mortality can be substantial. One large study's neonatal mortality rate was 2.6 percent, which rose to 6 percent when cases of rupture occurring before the mother reached a hospital were included

    Nevermind, apparently I didn't read it on the thread, now I have to go find out where I just read the information I attempted to refer to.
