hi everyone, yesterday i went to visit my cousin and new LO in hospital, she had him the day before last . he is absolutly gorgeous. she had a rough labour and had to have a last min. emergency csection. she also needs to have her gall bladder out as soon as she really wanted to breast feed but was unable to (im not sure why, but i think it had somthing to do with the medication she is on ). yesterday when we were seeing her, the baby was crying and needed feeding. i was so shocked when she told me that to encourage breast feeding there, they moved all the steralising and things needed for formula feeding to the other ward(which is a long walk away from her ward) to put them off bottle feeding. so she had to waddle in pain down to the other ward to make it (shes not just in pain from the c-section but from her gall bladder aswell). the midwife refused to help as she said she needs to get used to it! i was so shocked. its a mothers choice how she chooses to feed her baby, but it made me feel that the hospital were kind of discriminating against mothers who choose not to or unable to breast feed in order to make them feel bad. did you expereince this in hospital when you all had your LO's ?
