||My mood while writing this blog:|
Ok so my community midwife saw me through my last pregnancy and she is a lovely woman, but i am questionning her professionalism now.
In my last preg my SIL was 3 months ahead of me and aunt was 5 months behind me. So we all went through our pregnancies together with the same MW.
This time we are all pregnant again i am 3 months ahead of both of them and again we all have the same MW we had in the previous pregnancy.
I have had previous kidney problems and blood pressure as alot of you will probably know about, and my SIL is not in the best situation to be having her 3rd child also my aunt recently lost one of her twins.
Anyway at one of my earlier mw appts my MIL was with my and my MW kept talking to her about my SIL saying that she should not be preg again and all this stuff, now i didnt mind cos she is my SIL and i care about her but i thought at the time she shouldnt really be discussing another "patient" whilst on an appt with someone else no matter if they are related.
I didnt really think much more of it and put it down to concern. Then today at my SIL appt i found out MW blasted her for being pregnant again saying "she is not happy with her" then said she was not happy with me for getting pregnant again and she is suprised i was not on dialysis. Then started talking about our aunt. My SIL said yes it is devastating what happened.
Next thing i know Aunt has appt same day but later on and MW said "Oh from what Maria said i thought they would be carrying you in on a stretcher, she said you were totally distraught" WHAT?!?!?!
I mean i was pissed that she is talking about our pregnancies and saying i should be on dialysis and should not be having another baby......for her info after having 1st child i spoke to renal docs asked their PROFESSIONAL opinion and they said there is NO REASON WHATSOEVER why i cant have any more babies.
And as for my Aunt she should not be repeating things, i am so annoyed that is talking this way about us, is she thick or something. Does she not realise we all talk????
I dont want to make a complaint about her cos she is a nice woman, but on the same front i dont really want her discussing CONFIDENTIAL details with whoever, It is our choice to discuss our appts when and if we want to.
Well hopefully she will keep her mouth shut from now on.

- Thursday, 2 Oct Is she aware that she could loose her job discussing confidental patient information, if you still want to see her genetly remind her of the law or just repot her straight away if you want to switch. Good luck. xx griffinbaby07
- Thursday, 2 Oct I feel you dear! During my preg. with Aisling, after the section my mother came in and said "make sure to discuss your bladder with the doctor, she said that it was really high and they almost cut it open" I was like HOW THE HELL DID MY MOM KNOW BEFORE ME?!!? Sometimes I swear they get too jabby with their jaws! I had a couple of nurses like that too at the hospital who were talking to each other about other patients. In fact one nurse who didn't have me at all the day before commented when I was saying that Gin Gin was using me as a paci saying "Oh yeah I heard about that" WHAT THE HELL IS THAT? Sigh, professionalism is lacking big time in the health field. amberlee1
- Thursday, 2 Oct Unreal! She is aware you all are related.....she must be dim. I think that is unprofessional, related or not..she should not tell anyones info to anyone else. Not her place to judge you either. Her job is to care for pregnant women, not put them down and admonish them for becoming pregnant. Is she a drinker?! Poppy~Ella~Rae
