It’s amazing how life can go from being “perfect” to a huge struggle!
Before I had my children, I was happy, healthy and free.
But things changed.
I fell pregnant, the pregnancy was a breeze, I was still happy and healthy.
But then there was the labour.
I was in labour for 3 days (Weds-Fri), it was going perfectly well, but the pain of the contractions started to fully kick in. I had the epidural, which clipped my nerve.
My son came out with his arm above his heard, tearing me internally and externally, causing x2 4th degree tears and over 50 stitches + staples.
3 days after the birth, I has leaking stomach fluids and off all things my stools were coming out of my front!
I was rushed to the Royal Melbourne hospital and had to have a colostomy bag at the age of 17.

After all of that, I fell pregnant again, the doctors put me up as high risk, tried to force an abortion and pretty much kill my unborn child.
I didn’t allow it, I went through with the pregnancy.
He was pushing on my bowels, causing trouble with the colostomy and I had nearly died multiple times throughout the pregnancy.
But I soldiered on.
He was born at 38+5 weeks via c-section.
To this day, I have had major health issues and am at risk with every single thing I do.
I’m not even able to pick up my children (now 2 & 5).
It is depressing.
Take life seriously, be cautious, but will be happy!

  • Pity you didn’t report him but that would have been the last thing on your mind.
    It sounds as though he tried to make you misscarry. I don’t think you should have been in labour for 72 hours anyway. You would have been exhausted and the final stages would not have been normal procedure. I would have thought your baby was exhausted too. I know a lady who was given 3 epidurals and none of them worked. Prior to that she had never suffered any back discomfort at all. She has since a few hours after her baby was born by c-section as she had been in labour for 30 hours and the baby was in foetal distress. The midwife said everything was Ok. A obst. (not hers) walked in saif to her “you’re not still in labour” checked her and said to the staff “operating theatre now” and had to repeat himself. She had also been vomitting off and on for hours icluding water she was given to sip and should have had IV fluids. Her husband and Mother verified the details.
