Refused a c-section? NJ Division of Youth and Family Services thinks you're guilty of child neglect

    I have 8 children, one (last one) by c-section only because his life was in danger. I was refused at my "home" hospital with my second child because I refused a c-section. I just hung around till I was at the point of no return and went into their ER. My doctor told me "That was a dirty trick", but hey, whatever works. My daughter is 22 and healthy.
    The majority of women won't refuse a c-section if their child's life is in danger. When you have a lot of kids, you start to see a pattern of doctors/hospitals suggesting c-sections. It is all about the insane amount of lawsuits. So many doctors have been victims of ridiculous and costly lawsuits, they don't know what else to do.
    If you are pregnant, know your body and listen to it. Go to as many doctors or midwives as you have to until you are comfortable that they won't steer you wrong.
    There's a case, I believe in Jersey, where a pain pill addicted mother got on Methadone, as per her doctors suggestion, for the safety of the baby. She totally refrained from drug use (and still has a year later). Her (healthy) baby was taken from her for causing the baby to have to stay in the NICU for 10 days in their withdrawal program. What the heck? Out of control government.
