Putting our health and well-being at constant risk is certainly not only experienced by obstetrics.
As an anaesthetic nurse I am always surprised (and a bit concerned) at how unprepared women (and their partners) are when they find themselves having an emergency caesarean. With all the classes, appointments and the internet I think that some information should be given and knowledge gained about the emergency luscs as a very real possibility when having a baby!!
I hear stories like these all the time. Over my many years as a single adult female, all I keep thinking is, ‘why would anyone stay in a relationship like this?’. I get that society trains us to believe that being a part of a couple, marriage +\- kids is what we must find and maintain at all costs, to be seen as a valuable member of society. But, at what price? For the individual and the children (and pets) involved. How can someone ‘love’ an individual that adds so little to their life?
@leah you really think that this is worse than anything that is said to adult women who openly own not wanting children???? LOL, that is hilarious 🤣
I knew I wanted to be child free from pre-puberty. So when puberty and menstruation hit and was painful and causing a lot of sick days, I asked for a hysterectomy as it seemed stupid to live this 22-26 day cycle ad nauseam until menopause for no reason. I was assured by my gp that I would change my mind!!!
Members of the community not doing the right thing is certainly concerning.
