Completely freaked out!
I'm 15 weeks pregnant and made the irreversible decision to go public as I live near a brand new public hospital and have heard good things about it, I was also worried about the cost of going private. Now after speaking to midwives, I have started to feel extremely anxious and keep ending up in tears with worry!
It has been made very clear to me over and over that I will have to leave the hospital within 6-24 hours after birth.
I am already extremely terrified of labor and I now feel like the hospital are just going to push me out before I am ready and without the support that I need. I have been told by other mums that it is so important to have those days in hospital to recuperate and to have the support of hospital staff.
Am I being ridiculous or have I made a really bad decision?
Also is giving birth something I should be this scared over?
