I phoned up the delivery suite and I was treated very rudely on the phone. I told the member of staff I was in being induced later that day but I was in labour. They said to me and I know I told that they were very busy if I could wait a few hours or if I could come in at my schedule induction time. I said you have am l ready in labour I won't need an induction. This went on and then they said and annoyed tone well I guess you have to come in. When I went in the midwives looked a bit up-and-down I kept saying I was in labour when I and I was. They just feel like they're superior to you and they can tell you what your body is feeling when you know yourself what's going on. I had to argue until a doctor came in and said well we will induce you now and I said but I'm already in labour no one seem to hear me. When the doctor went to put the pessary and even though I said I didn't need it I was told that you are 5 cm already. I had it in less than two hours after I walked in. If I were to listen to that mmidwife on the phone or the one who checked me and I would've had it at home or in a taxi with a postpartum haemorrhage it seems like you are so interested in following policy and procedure in that examining a woman who is not and if that was Labour that you don't believe women when they say they're in established labour And need to be examined
