A local doula and birth asst to my midwife just got back from training at The Farm heres something they went over and shared
Oh dear heavens :( That's so sad. I can't believe the police couldn't be bothered to do a checkup on her. I wonder why she didn't have a follow up appt for at least the baby if not for herself? After my first, the nurses did a home visit because they were student nurses that had to do it for their clinicals.
Thank you for sharing this. I am hoping to leave the hospital early after our new bean comes, DH is a paramedic so he'll be able to keep an eye on me. I'll have to ask if they do home visits, that would be pretty convenient, but I'm thinking probably not.
This is so sad! I had two homebirths and my midwives checked on me multiple times!
I plan to have a homebirth this time, but its so sad that no one checked on this mom and everyone ignored she was "missing" even when the cops were sent to her house
