Hello! I am Steph & back in 2016 I gave birth to my first son. The labour was less than 1 hour total, and he arrived quite quickly. However due to the quick delivery I suffered a lot of trauma both mentally and physically. I ended up suffering from quite a large haematoma, and was not listened to by hospital staff until I started getting up to walk, I ended up collapsing on the floor and was unconscious for over half an hour due to significant blood loss. I had surgery and was in the critical care unit for 48 hours, during that time I did not see my son, and was hand expressed by nurses so my husband could feed our son. I believe I have since recovered, and in 2020 I went on to have my second child (induced!) with no issues. However went through the birth during covid. So had quite limited support during that time!

Looking forward to chatting!

Steph
