Well I didn't have a labour, but a had one hell of a pregnancy & c/section, it starts like this, at 24 weeks pregnant I was working as a chef doing some mega hrs, as their was no one else, I felt like my feet were swelling, I go see my gp the next day and she finds protein in my urine and that a some swelling in my feet and sends me to the hospital for more tests, I end up spending 3 days their, then getting released to continue weekly hospital visits, then 4 days later while back at gp, she checks my blood pressure and it's through the roof, with protein still in my urine, back to the hospital where I was for 1 week, before getting told I had to moved to bigger hospital cause they couldn't deal with such Premature birth at that point I was 25 +4 days, off to mater mothers Brisbane where I stayed for 5 long hard stressful weeks, I saw so many ppl come and go, I was angry, excited, scared! I was getting sicker by the day, scans ever 2nd day, bloods everyday, woken up every 4 hrs! Then on the 26th march I was told I was getting too sick and bub would be born tommorow morning at 8am via c/section at 30+4 days! On the day, everything went bad, my daughter was born placed in warm crib, with wires coming of her every where, I went back to my room to rest and everyone went home, but that wasn't the end, 20 mins later they came in and rushed me to ICU to start a magnesium infusion, I was there for 2 days, I would not let anyone see my daughter except her daddy until I was there! I was then released back to maternity ward and spent another 3 days there! My daughter blossomed she wasn't sick just tiny 2lbs, or 1.3kg she is now almost 4! I do feel I missed out on soo much, but that's life can't have your cake and eat it too!

Wow, I'm so sorry that people have been treated so badly. It's so unfair that something that should be beautiful and special has been ruined by horrible treatment.
