Forced episiotomy

From IntactWiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Many intactivists are concerned with the process of birth, and consider the routine use of episiotomies by American OB/Gyns, particularly when performed against the wishes of the mother or when consent is obtained by intimidation, as a form of genital mutilation and violence against a mother in a moment of vulnerability.

Reports of forced episiotomies and aggressive coercion to obtain consent for episiotomy exist, but only recently there has been litigation over this procedure.
