I'm still upset at the hospital.

Almost to years after i gave birth, I still find myself upset at the hospital we were at.
I guess first, my epidural feel out when the nurses moved me from my bed to the operating table.
As soon as I was wheeled out, I started feeling everything. i told the nurses but I was told it was just "nerves" and I was scared and I just needed to breath. A doctor came into my room to check my back and realized it wasn't even in.

But that wasn't even the most upsetting part to me!
They gave my twins their first bath without even telling me. It was the day after they were born, the nurse told me to get up and walk and the babies would sleep in the nursery.
I was gone for about 20 minutes and when I came back, they brought the babies back and said they had their first bath. I know it sounds stupid and it might be "just a bath" but when you don't have a choice, it really hurts. I feel like they took something away from me.

I never got a warning. At the time i kept it in and now I'm sorry I did because to this day, it still hurts. ;(

So I'm upset about something and the only thing you have to say is that I made a typo?
Sorry I'm not perfect.

They have always given the baby a sponge bath after birth. They don't bath them in a tub. I think you need to get over it.

It really makes me appreciate my hospitals set up. They do everything in the room unless the baby requires the nicu and I can ask to delay anything to have bonding time.
