The guy messages me that they had their baby and will be at a local hospital for the next couple days. So I say that I will try and swing by. I swing by and say hi to him, wife, and baby. They tell me the story of how she went into labor and the hospital checked her blood levels immediately (no bleeding yet). Horrible levels regarding safety for pregnancy. They tell me they had the levels checked at the third trimester and everything was fine. She had to refuse petocin and the older JW sisters were helping her contract with "cranial sacral" and other "natural methods". She did all this because the Dr.s started asking her "how serious are you about the blood issue". Petocin can cause such strong contractions that it can cause complications and c-sections are sometimes necessary. the doctor and themselves were scared that she wouldn't survive the c-section. So, she had 22 hours of hard labor because she wouldn't take petocin! gah!!!!!!!
my question is: why are the congregation elders not checking with EVERY pregnant JW woman to make sure she gets blood work right before expected labor dates!? didn't they have a leaked document regarding this a couple years ago?
