My visit to a Tristar Medical Centre.
I believe the doctor lied to me. The doctor and the ultrasound tech we used told me a story about seeing meconium in the water on the ultrasound for my 42 week 2 day gestation baby girl. I was told this was life threatening and we should head straight to the hospital or the baby could die. We were planning a home birth and this seemed to frighten the doctor, and I was under the impression that we were being coerced into hospital to make us birth there.
The problems I found with the story the doctor told me didn’t fit with my understanding of problems associated with meconium appearing on an ultrasound.
