I cant seem to get over this and its ruining my marriage
The day I gave birth to our daughter the nurses in L&D treated me horribly. At one point I took off all my clothes and attempted to change positions because the pain was excruciating,anyway at that time one of the nurses came over and told me to sit still and when I told her what I was trying to do she took me by the shoulders and slammed me backward into the bed. Then I sat back up and told her that wasnt okay. Just as this was going on the nurse (or whatever theyre called) who was supposed to be administering my epidural was wheeling her cart into the room but stopped at the door and told me if I didnt do what they said she was going to leave and not give me any pain medication. After that I did what they wanted and got my epidural. Immediately after our daughter was born a different nurse entered the room and stuck me in the leg with something before I even had a chance to ask what the hell it was! Also I am diabetic and from the time I checked in to the time our daughter was born (18 hours) they never checked my glucose levels. The part of this that is bothering me is that my husband was there the entire time and NEVER ONCE did he speak up or do a damn thing. I just dont respect him anymore or feel safe with him. I have lost any confidence I ever had in his ability to be a protector for me or our kids. The kicker is that was 4 years ago and I wonder if Ill ever get over it.
Edit: Okay so clearly some of you missed the point of this post which is my concern for my marriage. It would have been foolish to think everyone would believe me,so no I didnt come here believing that,or trying to spark a debate about L&D. I want to thank those of you who offered me kindness and better insight as to what my husband may have been feeling because sometimes understanding the other side of the coin helps us to forgive :) Aaaanyway Im not interested in entertaining the cruelty some of you seem to thrive on so I wont be back in this post,but Ill leave it up in case anyone else could use some of the links that were provided. GN (or morning) all.
