Model of care

Why did you choose this model of care?

Water immersion for labour and birth, Support for normal vaginal birth, Unmedicalised birth process, Birth support team of my choice (no visitor restrictions)

How did your birth start?

Spontaneous labour (started naturally)

What were your outcomes?

Staff I didn't know attending me, CTG monitoring (continuous monitoring of baby's heartbeat), Induction/augmentation of labour, Vaginal birth, Obstetric violence (eg denied care, forced into decisions, touched without consent, yelled at)

Details of experience

I did not give consent to many things during my birth, I was not asked for consent. I was not offered pain relief, or support in any way shape or form. I was told my baby would die if I didn't let them put the fetal scalp monitor on my unborn baby, after the midwife had put me under severe stress. I was threatened with DCJ if I discharged before 48 hrs (baby & I were perfectly healthy, no complications) The midwife was rude, invasive, did not listen to anything I said or wanted, ignored me when I clearly did not give consent. I was not aloud out of bed, I got yelled at for rolling from my back to belly after I refused constant monitoring - to which, they ignored and still made me have.
