A Reflection of My Birth

I feel gipped.

I feel like I was taken away from my baby, from my partner and from the moment I was meant to have introducing him to my mum.

I feel like the nurses should have recognised the fact that what they were doing wasn’t working.

I feel like they should have given me ALL the options.

I feel like I didn’t get to bond with my baby.

I feel like I don’t know what to do with him because I didn’t get that time.

I didn’t get a photo as a new family.

I didn’t get to spend the first night as a family like we planned.

I feel like someone should have come and debriefed with me.

To help me work through my feelings of the situation and how to manage that with all of my hormones and stress levels at an all time high.

I feel like everything after the birth wasn’t right.
