when i was born (i was a c-sec in 1980, an old style c-sec, YKWIM) the nurse came in and my mom was laying on her side and i was on the bed feeding, or trying to feed, and the nurse asked her what she was doing.
mom goes, "what does it look like?" the nurse came over, took me from my mom, rolled my mom over very roughly, (she just had a c-sec the day before), and told her to sit up and use a pillow. when mom refused and asked to have me back, she took the bed controller and pushed the button that makes the bed go into an upright sitting position. then she shoved a pillow onto my mom's tummy and then she shoved me onto the pillow...then she forced my mom's nipple into my mouth. we were both crying! mom told her to leave and she wouldn't leave until i was fed....my dad was out somewhere, mom was all alone with that crazy nurse.
as if that wasn't bad enough, mom's nipples started to crack and bleed once we got home, and she stopped bfing me altogether.
So i was bf for 3 or 4 days.
and she didn't even try to bf my brother...she said she just knew she would do it wrong.
oh, and why did my mom have a c-sec?? well, her ob went home saying that she would be in labor all night, and she hadn't progressed (1st baby) the dr coming on the next shift came in, (mom laboring alone in a tiny room) and looks at her and tells her that i "flipped over" and he needed to do an "emergency c-sec". no exam or anything!! the same dr told my dad in the waiting room that the cord was around my neck and was choking me. so dad signed the consent forms and i was born under general anesthesia....
: her original ob was shocked and angry when he came in several hours later to check on my mom and found her in surgical recovery.
i don't trust hospitals.
***wow***that was long...sorry
