My daughter went into labour and had a very difficult birth where she had lost a lot of blood. Fortunately my grandchild was delivered and is well and healthy.
My daughter had an episiotomy but was stitched internally and externally without pain relief, she suffered a great deal of pain, worse than the actual birth. She was eventually allowed to shower to freshen up. She was extremely pale and weak and hadn't eaten for some time. She was left to shower in her room without any nursing assistance, she passed out in the shower due to her weak state and blood loss. Luckily she only hurt her arm and sustained bruises but it could have been much worse.
This was her first baby, how would she know the pitfalls? Surely dealing with this all day every day the nurses should have been aware this could happen?
