Default Healthcare issues in FL

Reading the sad Post from Thomas reminded me of this: Our daughter had a c-section last time.Just recently they passed a law in FL that will not allow a woman to have a natural birth if she ever had a c-section. This is mainly based on doctors covering their butts in case something happens. Medical data does not back this up. But the doctors are so afraid to get involved in a lawsuit the goverment made the law. This is absolutely outrages!!!! $$$$ talks here..nothing else ! So now she must have a c - section come November.

Blame the lowlife ambulance chasing lawyers who even advertise to troll for business among America's growing "victim" community.

Thomas the new law was created because there is a very small chance the old scar can erupt and the mother can die. Doctors don't want to take a chance and got what they wanted. A more expensive, riskier way to give birth. Operations are always more risky in my opinion. Doug you are right...those lawyers are so bad!

Plenty of bad ones out there, Doug, but remember - no one FORCES someone to hire one of the slimeball lawyers! Slimeball lawyers only exist because slimeball CLIENTS hire them.

excuse my ignorance (comes from being a man), I thought that was pretty common that if a woman had given birth by a c-section, if she had more children they would be by c-section ?

No, it had been proven that a natural birth following a c-section was very safe and they changed it. FL however did not agree.

The thinking sure has changed in 16 years! I had a c section with first child and was STRONGLY encouraged to go natural for the 2nd....I tried my hardest but it just didn't work....once he came out we saw why......the "little" bugger was 10lbs! (and is now 6'2'!)
I agree with Dorothy about the slimeball clients.

Our healtcare system is like this in a large way because of patients who decide to sue for every little thing.........doctors and healthcare workers have to cover their butts at every turn. Slimeball lawyers and slimeball clients are the biggest part of the problem.

From a mother who had the first child via c-section and the second child natural. It can be done in Florida. At least 13 years ago . I believe they cut the woman two ways during the c-section nowadays. This prevents the tearing/ripping (sorry not a doctor). I do know that Florida is losing many doctors and the ones that stay are posting signs that they have no insurance, enter at your own risk.

Just an fyi, the second child that was a VBAC (vaginal birth after casearean) was TEN POUNDS 4 OZ! TWENTYTHREE INCHES LONG!!!! I was blessed and had no problem with the birth. My child was in intensive care, but I believe that was the result of the man who rear-ended me 8 days before he was born.


Advice, check with your doctor first. I told mine that under no circumstances was I going throug another c-section and boy did he listen to me!

Good Luck
