5.0 out of 5 stars Saved my Baby, October 10, 2005
By 
This review is from: Mayo Clinic Guide to a Healthy Pregnancy (Paperback)
This is the best book out there by far. I had 3 other pregnancy books in addition to this one. This book answered every question I had during pregancy. And I had lots of them. At the week 38, I wasn't feeling great but I wasn't dying either. Just not feeling too well. I was having some minor chills, and NO fever. No other symptom. I opened the book and it said to call my OBGYN right away. I did so and my OBGYN wasn't too sure that it was urgent. My OBGYN then changed her mind 5 min later called me back and told me to go to the hospital for a quick checkup. My babies heartrate was over 200/min. They managed to stabilize him and 15 min his heartrate dropped to 80/min. Needless to say, my OBGYN did and emergency C-section. Had I not had this book and been so persistent with my doctor, my baby might be not be alive. Well worth every penny it costs.

Wow. This is unbelievable. I've always been very strict with researching things and figuring out what was wrong with me, mostly to satisfy my curiosity but also because I don't always trust doctors implicitly. Your story has cemented my decision to buy this book. I'm really glad your baby is healthy and happy! Good luck!

You are right that 80 BPM is not normal; it is indicative of a baby in distress. Any reputable provider would have confirmed this was baby's heart rate rather than the mother's before proceeding to cesarean delivery. This is easily accomplished by measuring the mother's pulse and comparing the two (often with a pulse oximeter) or by applying a fetal scalp electrode. The fact that her baby's heart rate was 200 at arrival (also abnormal and suggestive of a baby experiencing stress) solidifies the case that the baby required immediate delivery.
Why would you jump to the very disturbing conclusion that a cesarean was performed without cause when you have no data or background information?
