I am enraged and terrified. There are always 2 sides to a story and the layman will vouch for the underdog which is what we are all doing for Rashmi – read MM’s post here.But how could we not?
As someone who will be (hopefully) a mother soon, this story is my worst nightmare. Of course, my situation is not the same. This is my first child. What annoys me most is the hospital’s claim (Wockhardt has a long rebuttal in MM’s comments) that Rashmi chose Dr. Latha because she wanted a VBAC. This is conjecture and probably not useful to any lawyer fighting on facts but I know, I just KNOW that no matter how certain a woman is about how she wants her birth to be, no matter how much she is set on a certain type of experience she would not, would not put her child at risk.
We hear about miscarriages, right up until the third trimester. But when a full-term child dies during delivery it makes me very very suspect.
Wockhardt presents a different image of Rashmi – someone who is sending “random” emails and “purposely” harming the doctor’s reputation. That Rashmi doesn’t want mass media attention speaks volumes for the kind of person she is and the change she is seeking. The kind of person she is, is a mother.
