Just curious if they are treated well at your hospital. I just started at mine, and I havent seen a transfer come in yet, but I've heard a few stories where home birthers came in, for prolonged labor,etc. and the nurses I work with act like it's the worst thing ever. To my knowledge (through research) the LMs in my area are very good and provide excellent prenatal care, know when they really need to transfer etc.

I've seen this at another hospital where I worked during school, and was just wondering if this is the norm. I think it's terrible.


Personally, I treat all of my patients with respect. Most of my co-workers do as well. The few times I've seen homebirth transfers come in, the moms were treated well, but there were many opinions about homebirthing discussed at the nurse's station.
