The inequality of the sydney lockdowns have been at best laughable and at worst discriminatory and potentially racist.
Living through a global pandemic is uncertain for everyone, whether they are parents or not!! Well, those that are paying attention anyway!
We, a group of HCW’s, we’re discussing the care of mental health conditions just recently. Imagine if their was emergency triage for mental health like there is for physical health. Resus, monitored bays, cubicles and fast track….that is the ED for physical illnesses and injuries.
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.
