This is on behalf of a friend of mine who went into labour on Monday, the 5th August 2013. She arrived to the hospital around 21.00hr and the baby, thank God, was borne in 20 minutes. So the natural birth was fantastic. It was after the birth when the nurses told my friend's husband to leave the room where his wife and their new baby were put in. He was not allowed to see his wife until 9.00 the next morning. As they didn't' have any English the understanding was poor but the nurses were very cold and distant. My friend spent the whole night on her own with the baby one room while her family was sent away until the next morning. During the night she couldn't sleep worrying about the baby as no nurses visited her during the night. Only one who went to check my friends urine. That was all. Then the following the day no interpreter was arranged, so when the Pediatrician came to check the baby, the communication was extremely poor, but nobody really cared about that. So thank God there was not complications or any problems with both the mother and the baby, physically speaking, but she was astonished by the coldness of the staff and the lack of charity and humanity.. In such an important and delicate moment in a woman's life care and warmth is always needed.
