I had the worst stay in the Townsville Hospital ever! ! ! !
I gave birth to my beautiful baby. I ended up not being able to deliver my placenta the midwife snapped my cord which caused my placenta to go back in and I begin to bleed I lost blood. When I woke up I got wheeled back into birth suit were my baby was. I was weak, I couldn't move, I couldn't even move my arms, I was exhausted and basically had the life taken out of me. And the nurse didn't help me one bit, I needed help to breastfeed my baby as I couldn't move. My best friend ended up helping me. Then that afternoon I got move to a room and I was angry they had put my baby in the little cot far away from me. I struggled to get up out of bed to pick baby up and they didn't seem to care one bit. I didn't even receive a blood transfusion when I should have. They put me on iron tablets! ! What's that going to do when I lost of blood. I ended up discharging myself the next day. I couldn't stand the thought of being there one more day. Sad to say I fully risked my life going home, just so I could receive the help I needed while being so ill ... Never want to have a baby in Townsville Hospital again! ! Next time I'm having my baby in a private hospital ! ! !
