I wonder if white women were more likely to be denied?
For once, racial data not gathered? …or published?
She added: “We have spoken with many women who have been so traumatised by their experience of childbirth that they are considering ending what would otherwise be wanted pregnancies.
“Staffing shortages may be an issue but we also know women may experience gatekeeping by healthcare professionals and be told labour ‘is meant to be hard work’,” she added.
remember when they called nuns pure evil for refusing unwed mothers pain relief?
The child is more likely to die if the mother is stressed. Same with the mother.
“It is both inhumane and discriminatory.”
But in January, a Sunday Telegraph investigation claimed some women were being denied epidurals because of what the paper said was a “cult of natural childbirth” in some NHS Trusts.
Cult of saving money. That’s torture.
Dr David Bogod, a council member of the Royal College of Anaesthetists and a consultant at Nottingham University Hospitals NHS trust with a special interest in obstetrics, said midwives sometimes wrongly told women there was a narrow window in which they could have an epidural: when the cervix is between 4cm and 6cm dilated. “But it’s never too early and never too late [for an epidural], if that’s what a woman wants,” he said.
I’ve heard that too.
You can have it later to relieve the mother so the baby doesn’t have a heart attack.
Bogod said that “there’s reasonable, anecdotal evidence that some midwives will use the excuse that an anaesthetist isn’t available if they themselves feel an epidural isn’t appropriate for the woman based on their own beliefs around intervention-free births”.
Sadists. They lie.
“The national standard is that a woman should be given an epidural within 30 minutes to one hour of asking for it, except in exceptional circumstances,” he said. “Labour wards are amply supplied with anaesthetists and so that isn’t an unreasonable target for us.
They paid for the service. Never trust socialists.
“The commonest reason for women to be denied an epidural is because of a lack in midwife numbers: we have a drastic national shortage of midwives,” he added. The NHS in England is short of the equivalent of almost 2,500 full-time midwives.
Bogod pointed to the scandals at Telford’s Princess Royal and the Royal Shrewsbury hospitals, and Morecambe Bay, where babies and mothers died preventable deaths at least partly because midwives had a focus on making women giving birth without medical intervention.
Primitive. That’s murder.
And you wonder why married women aren’t having as many kids?
Maternal mortality has gone UP in America, for example.
And if it’s born healthy
English teenagers are increasingly likely to be injured in youth violence and the UK is lagging behind other European countries on measures including infant mortality, according to UK-wide research into the state of child health by the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health.
Socialism makes the problems WORSE.
It found that the health of children who live in deprived areas is largely worse than those in more prosperous places and that inequalities have widened since 2017.
Possible but non-white kids have worse health outcomes in general, especially mixed.
The college said the slide in conditions was rarely seen in developed countries
Because we imported them and their shitty genetics.
Infant mortality here only higher in POLAND (who also have been putting women off breeding).
Yet UK infant mortality rates have stalled, and in England they actually got worse between 2016 and 2017. For a high-income nation such as ours, that should be a major wakeup call.”
Importing midwives from low IQ nations like Jamaica may be to blame!?
Just read that last one if you’re impatient.
Polish women in FACT are not traditional mother types, they’re r-types. If you look at EU-collected data on Polish women and their real opinions in surveys.
