Details of experience

From the very beginning of my pregnancy I expressed my concerns of my previous birth with my son. This was brushed and not taken seriously.

My birth with my daughter went very similar and her heart rate was lost in a number times. No rush our urgency for other options was considered and was left to continue pushing and put my baby into major stress when the midwife had no idea if I was contracting at the time she was making me push not to mention had not heart rate of the baby.

I then had to have the doc turn the baby around using her hands via the vagina and then insert the suction.

They pulled 4 times with the suction and still had not heart rate and didn’t ones consider a c section.

My baby was born completely blue and purple and not breathing had to be worked on for some time. Not to mention the extreme Bruce that was left on her forehead just missing her eye.

I’m so worried about long term issues this may cause her.
