Diary of a Bereaved Mother: Hospital administration

21 years after I became a bereaved mother, Wilemina and Jaccob Simeon were made to wait in a public waiting room with her still birth baby.

This reminded me when I delivered my very sick baby, he was rushed to ICU. I was allocated to a normal ward with two other mothers with normal babies. I was there for about 6 hours before my baby's pediatrician moved me to a private room. I am very thankful for him.

I do not wish for any one to go through what I had to go through. It was just cruel to let a mother with a very sick baby to share a room with healthy babies. Where was my obstetrics specialist who should have be there during my delivery?

  1. This video is just awful!!!! The hospital apoligized and says it is investigating, it will never happen again...but I wonder. I wonder if this is unusual,maybe it's happened to others but they didn't speak up about it. I wonder if they have an excuse? They should certainly not charge her anything at all!!!
