Dr. Diana du Plessis
In Association with Philips Avent
“……Midwife X called for obstetric back-up too late…….. I was called in as to provide an explanation and to write a detailed incident report. I already felt bad that [the incident] happened, all of a sudden I felt it was my fault.”
“When I complain about this issue, my concerns are ignored”.
“I refused to do that, it’s her responsibility and I told her to phone the back-up gyne if she is not up to it.”
“I also take responsibility if I suture…. Why can’t she do it herself? I’m not good enough to be present during the birth, why do I have to do the dirty work? How do I know what happened?”
Interference in the normal process of labour
“…I felt unwelcome and disappointed” and “I didn’t know if she noticed I was actually there”
