Recently my daughter and her partner attended a regular pregnancy checkup at Angliss House in Ferntree Gully. My daughter returned home in tears after a bad experience with the obstetrician. Her other appointments have been with midwives which have made her feel very comfortable and cared for.
Unfortunately, today as she is nearing 36 weeks, she felt that the obstetrician was very rude and abrupt causing her to feel very uncomfortable and emotional. My daughter does suffer from anxiety which she is medicated for and this was marked on her file. She has had a very good pregnancy, which is her first, up until what my daughter felt was a lack of care given by this obstetrician. Their attitude was unacceptable for someone at this late stage of pregnancy and I just wanted to pass on my disappointment so other women don't encounter the same treatment.
I called the centre and the receptionist was so kind and helpful referring my daughter on to a midwife immediately who calmed her. In this conversation, the midwife offered to give her a tour of the hospital birthing suites to reassure her where she would need to go when she went into labour. This question of where to go was one my daughter had planned to ask at her appointment but forgot as she was so upset. After the care of this midwife, my daughter came home happy and relaxed which is all we hope for at this stage.
