    I delivered ds at private hospital and the nurses were terrible. I still can't, a year on get over the way they treated me.

    I had a shocking midwife for most of my labour with DS. The one at the beginning and the one at the end were lovely and all of the ones who helped me in hospital for the 5 days after were wonderful. Like any profession, you get some who are wonderful and some who suck.

    I birthed at the women's in Melbourne and every single midwife was like an angel there. Loved them all. Only problem was my room was right next to the nurse's station and they all chatted LOUDLY alll night.

    The midwife I had through most of my labour was a total cow. My birth could have gone much differently. It's a big deal.

    We had some fantastic midwives and some horrible, terrible ones. But we requested to not have the midwives we really hated so we mostly had nice ones

    In my personal experience, for every lousy midwife I've met at least 5 wonderful ones.

    It's just the lousy ones people seem to remember best.

    My group practice and birth sweet midwives were awesome . Totally down hill from there... Rude, demeaning, no support, nasty, . I could do pregnancy labour c section etc all again , but the stay in hospital after terrifies me to the point I think of not having another baby

    Loved both of mine for each birth but there were a few on duty when mine wasn't around that were a bit rude and nasty..

    I had good experiences when I had my DD. Through the majority of my labour the middie I had with me was a really warm, fun older lady, and the ones on the ward were great for the most part. The hospital I went too had a strict hand off policy with breast feeding so I was relieved not to have anybody *handling* me.
