  • My Husband was not allowed to stay and i had just had a c section. I could not get out of bed or do anything for baby and the nurses where just terrible. I would kindly ask for them to change babies nappy but they didnt want to and wouldn't help me do it. I forced myself to walk 24 hours after the c section even though i was in agony and hadn't had time to heal yet because i couldn't have my baby stay there and be uncared for. Therefore i landed up being discharged due to a supposed speedy recovery. I would have loved my husband to be there to look after the baby and me. One of the nurses forced me to take a shower on my own because " I am disgusting for bleeding all over the bed ". It was just the worst experience ever. I was in agony at home and bed bound for three days, where my husband took great care of the baby and I . My parents came over to help as well.
