Most expectant mothers take time selecting an OB/GYN who is capable of providing top tier care and who agrees with the mother's birthing preferences. Unfortunately, for some expecting mothers, the doctor they chose isn't available when they go into labor. Other times, a doctor you carefully selected and trusted with your health and the life of your infant makes choices for his or her own convenience instead of your safety.
The overuse of medical interventions in labor and delivery can complicate an otherwise natural process, putting both mother and child at risk. Sometimes, the negative outcome is simply the need for surgical delivery. Other times, the consequences can be catastrophic. That is sometimes the case when a doctor administers a drug called misoprostol during labor.
