This show is about us discussing hot topics and how they relate to the law.
Tonight we discuss the business of childbirth.  A woman is suing a New York hospital, claiming she was given a cesarean section against her will. Her first two children were delivered by C-section and resulted in difficult recoveries. So in 2011, she was determined to have her next baby naturally, through a procedure called "vaginal birth after cesarean," or VBAC. It carries risk but can be performed successfully. After several hours of labor, the mother’s doctor pushed back and forced her into having a third C-section. Dray is suing the hospital and doctors, claiming negligence, malpractice and lack of informed consent.  Joint Bennet and Sarah as they discuss the business of medicine and what we as patients can do to keep our rights in place while we keep our health intact.
