A cup full of attitude from a midwife.

Ola dolls, Had to do a hospital run for baby this morning and it brought back all the horrors I have had to endure in the name of health care. The customer service in this country sucks but when it comes to the healthcare industry, it goes a step further into darker murkier waters. Right from when I took my pregnancy test, I have been through a huge amount of prejudice and judgement simply for being unwed. It is no wonder to me anymore that so many girls opt out and abort. Our society looks down on having children out of wedlock but I feel that our healthcare proffessionals who are meant to preserve life should not carry this attitude. More on this later and that midwife...she almost threw me out of the labour ward for refusing a vaginal exam and insisting on having C-section. Crazy, right?!
