When I had my 2nd I had so much encouragement from midwives but not one positive word was said to me in 48hrs of labour with my 1st.
I was then sent straight to see a consultant and threatened that I had to have a GTT and when I politely declined, I was told that I was risking my baby being still born.
A tale of coercion of both this and subsequent births.
Too many bed changes!!! Such a lack of compassionate care.
