Model of care
GP/hospital shared care
Why did you choose this model of care?
What were your choices for this birth?
Nothing in particular-willing to fit in with hospital processes
How did your birth start?
Induction of labour
What were your outcomes?
Staff I didn't know attending me, CTG monitoring (continuous monitoring of baby's heartbeat), Induction/augmentation of labour, Epidural, Episiotomy, Vaginal birth, Breastfeeding difficulties, Ongoing health challenges for me/baby, Obstetric violence (eg denied care, forced into decisions, touched without consent, yelled at)
Details of experience
I experienced coersed consent and manipulation into unwanted vaginal exams. My birth plan was ignored. I wasn't given all of my options. I was pressured into making fast decisions by OBs using scare tactics. This all resulted in birth trauma.
