Re: Shoulder dystocia = c-section now?

Doctors can and do lie to get what they want.
Sure, they can and do....but most...don't. And, most don't want to do a C-section either. Most health care professionals really do their best to do what they believe is best for their patients. There are more good docs than bad. Just like there are more good cops than bad cops and just like there are more good teachers than bad teachers, etc etc.

There are LOTS and LOTS and LOTS of docs out there all over the country. So, even when you consider that most docs are good docs who don't lie, it does of course still leave plenty of them who aren't so great and will lie. But that doesn't change the fact that just by default of sheer numbers, the average person is more likely to get a good doc than a bad one.

Some docs will lie. Most won't. If the OP believes her doc is lying to her she needs to find a different one. But if she doesn't think he's deliberately lying to her, then what she really needs to do is do the real research on her own risks with her own history and discuss it with her doc, so the two people who are most knowledgeable about her birthing situations are the ones making the best guess.
