Hi all, I am an RN who is getting her PhD, why I am still not sure most days, but as my background is all maternal-child I was looking into the idea of maternal request c-sections, the "too posh to push" theory, and was wondering if you all had any opinions on this. (Usually you can count on nurses for their opinions!) In my experience it often seemed like the elective sections frequently thought it was the docs idea, (baby too big, etc), while the docs are calling that patient choice, which I guess it is, but as a nurse and therefore a patient advocate it concerns me that many patients seem to think the section was the only choice. I am not disagreeing that some patients are requesting c-sections, just wondering if the numbers are as high as the media seems to make it and if we are really educating them well enough on the topic. Any thoughts? Thanks for any and all input!
