Thirty-five-year-old Rinat Dray, a mother of three boys, is suing a New York hospital for giving her a C-section against her will, KHOU reported on June 18.
According to Dray, in 2011 she told her physician that she wanted to undergo natural labor through a procedure called vaginal birth after cesarean, or VBAC, because she experienced difficult recovery periods after her first two babies were delivered by C-section. However, after several hours of labor, Dray said her doctor pressured her into a C-section out of impatience. She claims he said, “I don’t have all day for you.”
Because she was given a C-section regardless of her protests, Dray is suing the hospital and doctor for negligence, malpractice, and lack of informed consent.
