I have been ready quite a bit about traumatic births recently. I was basically bullied into having a cesarean because it was the middle of the night and the doctor on call wanted to go back to bed. My daughter also kept moving around away from the fetal heart monitor so I kept being told she was in distress. My midwife was called but they started the surgery without her. They almost forgot to bring my husband in. Then they took away my daughter for no good reason and wouldn't bring her to me for about 16 hours. I had a bunch of male interns watch me attempt to breastfeed without my consent as well as pulling up my gown to look at the scar without my consent. Also the pain meds sucked. Tylenol 3 doesn't cut it when the next person gets morphine for the same pain.
I know there is a lot worse that could happen but that was my first surgery and hospital stay. It was pretty traumatic for me. Anyone else want to share?
