Of course, my idea of an unreasonable demand could be very different from yours....
I don't think that moms in labor should be starved or strapped down - but there are circumstance where that is what seems to be needed (rare, but real). Say a mom who is bleeding a lot and it's a toss up cesarean vs normal birth.....
