I would avoid this doctor at all costs. She doesn't listen to any concerns you may have - and doesn't bother to explain why your birth 'plan' has been formulated. I never felt at any point that I had a choice about any of it. I also had various concerns which were just ignored and not even discussed. Thank god for my lovely midwife who assured me I DO have a choice, and told me not to worry as we would get to a plan that we're all happy with. It's my first child - after 6 private IVF attempts - so, yes, I do want to ensure every the goes well if I possibly can. I do know things don't always go as you would like but, really, this lady would do well to work on her bedside manner. I have a second opinion booked and feel much calmer already.
