"Some places where I've worked, it’s like an old boys' club. They don’t seem to respect women’s bodies; they don’t respect the process. They're arrogant to the nurses. They don’t seem to practice by ACOG guidelines... I've seen fundal pressure, like this, the fist in the stomach. They don’t treat women like human beings. And the nurses eventually start taking on that attitude as a matter of survival. That's why I work in Berkeley now, because we tend to have more compassionate providers in this area."
