Mothers are being abused during childbirth. We need our own #MeToo | Sally Gimson | Opinion | The Guardian

1st was over 2 weeks, OB told nite to hold me

back, after telling me he drove a Porsche and

would be right there .

She told him to get his ass there , I was having

a baby .

I delivered a non alert, 9 lb 3 Oz , 22″ baby

a shade of purple blue , with his cord wrapped

around his neck 3 times ..

After telling me the facts , I sent the RN labor

delivery nurse a dozen roses , and the Dr a letter

explaining why I considered him at fault , nearly

costing my 1st born his life , in requesting nurse

hold me back.

Of course with his recent death , he was the BEST

OBGYN , ever , just like his Dad .

Cut to accommodate a 14 ” head , I was not sutured

correctly ..

Women are scared to speak out about what has happened as they give birth, says Sally Gimson, deputy editor of Index on Censorship
