  1. Wow, it’s crazy to know there are so many other women who felt they had no say in their birth. I always wanted a natural home birth but being an older mum at 38 and borderline gestational diabetes I was given no choice.
    I was in 4 days being induced, the constant meddling about made me go into complete retention and my bladder occluded the cervix. When they catheterised me I went into shock and they put it down to sepsis. After 12 hours of constant contractions I signed a consent form for an epidural as I was in agony and ended up with a c section.
    I spent the next 3 nights sitting in the edge of my bed as I was so much pain I couldn’t get into bed. I was breastfeeding and couldn’t put baby down or she’d scream. This was the only time I would see anyone–to tell me off that my baby was starving!! By the second day I was in so much pain and exhausted I was convinced they were going to take her off me and cried uncontrollably for days after I went home. I lost a lot of blood and only realised I should be on iron after the health visitor mentioned it.
    I consider myself very fortunate for the experience to have not affected me too much. Once we were home, I was able to enjoy being a new mum but feel I was robbed of the chance to have the best experience of my life. It was unnecessarily stressful for both myself and my baby who I knew wasn’t ready to be born.

    • I am so sorry I missed this post – I am also sorry for your awful experiences – it should never happen like this – even when birth does change course – kindness goes such a long way and post natal support is vital. xx
