Wow. Thanks for enlightening me and solving that age old argument "Which came first, the baby or the doctor?"
If the mother was going to just go ahead and have the baby at home, then why call the ambulance?
So using the ambulance to get to the hospital automatically means you are a bad mother
That you don't care about your children?
You must not know much about reality. In reality many people don't have cars and also live many miles away from the hospital. A woman about to give
birth isn't exactly in the best condition to walk all the way now is she? Maybe there isn't a taxi service available either?
No offense but your opinions are totally uninformed about this subject, the random chaos of reality, the purpose of an ambulance (and no it's not for
ghetto folk exclusively), and then you proceed to denigrate and de-legitimize the woman's claim to her own child by saying that crap?
And women planning their birth moment? Get real dude. Seriously?
Women never know the exact moment a baby can be born, give or take a few weeks!
They don't know birth is about to happen until the water breaks at least, and then after the water breaking they immediately seek medical assistance
(if they so choose).
TONS of people have had babies in ambulances, on the street, on boats or airplanes, trains, everywhere. And many of them were great parents and loved
their kids, many of them were wealthy successful people, highly intelligent, etc.
Your assumptions are based primarily on socioeconomic prejudices and over generalizations.
