I have a c section scheduled Tuesday and had my last MW appt last night, she was wonderful and so honest with me. She said they just had a meeting at which they were told of new strict deadlines.... VBirths must be discharged within 6 hours and cesarian births within 2 days.... she said although its sad there will be pressure for me to leave within this time frame. Obviously pending any complications. A MW will do home visits, but thats a bit different to 24 hr support.
I wish I had gone private, maybe what they say about the public health system in QLD is true. I don't mind going home if I feel ready, but recovering last time was scary!
Hoping I have a straight fwd procedue and I'm up on my feet asap....
I feel for the staff as well, most of them are working there because they love it, but now they are expected to treat people a little less personally.
