Hi there I thought I'd create this thread for people to vent about their birth experiences I've noticed since the birth of my daughter 10 days ago there's not much support there are health visitors and midwives but I'm finding the support inadequate for example this morning I get a call from the midwife after having a c sec still wearing a catheter after bladder injury during c sec.
can I make my way to the children centre to weigh baby ??
I mean I've just had a traumatic birth c section and injury to bladder but I'm expected to walk to the children centre with catheter in and baby in toe.no how are you ?
and also she forgot to put phone down and heard her explaining to another person how I can't come in by the by midwife is coming to weigh my baby later.but where is the support for mummies ?
I don't mean a silly questionnaire either what all mums get but midwifes should at least ask how mums are all I've had is people demanding and telling me what to do since I had my baby bear in mind 4th baby .me and some ladies had the same discussion in hospital.in labour I was refused gas and air as they didn't think I was gone far enough then told my birth plan won't go ahead so went with what they said and there the ones who damaged my bladder.just want people to talk here if they are still struggling with their birth experiences!
Found I have two incisions instead of one. I've now been able to look at my scar after 10 days after refusing to look and wanting to put everything behind me I've not consulted on the full events of what happened in surgery as I've been avoiding it I can't change what happened I have to live with it .but at same time I'm grateful my daughter is here and alive but it dosent change the trauma I'm feeling x
If any ladies are struggling with what they experienced at birth please comment here so we can help each other I will keep boosting my thread up for new mums
