I Am Looking For Women Who Would Share Their Story

I am a freelance journalist, currently collecting some material on pregnancy. I would love to use some real life stories about pregnancies that went wrong because of doctors/ health professionals fault.

I had a mishap with my first pregnancy. My Doctor (a general practitioner from a small town) decided that I should be induced. for 3 days I went to our local hospital where we attempted induction with Pitocin. Each day I went home with out any success. On my 3rd visit, Dr. decided to "break my water" approximately 8 hours later, The babies heart rate was dropping very low, they decided to do an ultrasound and found the baby was frank Breach (undeliverable vaginally in this position). I had to have an emergency C-section. It was scary. when they tested my baby's age, we found that my baby was 3 weeks early. it is advisable to always do an ultrasound prior to breaking someone's "water"
