Would you give birth here?
In other words...
Because Physicians at Aspen Women's Center care only about doing things their own way and making as much money as possible from unnecessary birth interventions, even if it poses greater risks to the welfare and health your baby, we will not participate in a "Birth Contract", a doula-assisted, or a Bradley Method delivery. For all patients who have done any research into having the safest birth possible, please notify the nurse so that we can transfer you to a facility that cares less about control and money.
I guess we can at least credit them with warning women in advance. Many hospitals with the same attitude don't have a sign hanging out front.
Thanks to @unnecesarean for alerting me to this picture. Read her post too on this and another OB with a similar policy: An OB's Birth Plan: Obstetrician's Disclosure Sent One Mom Running. You can also check out @summerm's post about this sign: Why Do Doctors Hate Women?
