Not exactly am introduction...
« on: May 24, 2015, 06:40:15 PM »

Just wanted to apologise to you, I said I was back and then I disappeared after I'd posted a single question really. I had a little boy, and he is wonderful. It's been so complicated and I want to do a quick explanation, but if you don't want to or don't have time to read drop to the last bit.



 For some reason, despite specialists being involved from the off, some doctors got worried about my medication and we  had to fight to keep him with me after the birth. The hospital I had been with were incredibly clinical about it and set in stone that they would put him on a neonatal unit to observe him, even if born really healthy. Our problem was that if healthy he wouldn't need to be in that environment and the hospitals policy was that I would not be caring for him, in fact I'd only be able to hold him when they had enough staff on hand and deemed it ok. I had to move to another hospital in the last week on my pregnancy despite weeks of fighting and being promised that a compromise would be reached.(we didn't realise a change was possible until that last meeting).

He was born wonderfully healthy and it was such a quick birth that, despite my fears surrounding medical intervention, he ended up being born in my parent's house with paramedics present for the last five minutes. They'd never seen a birth before.



I've been struggling to find a good amount of time to join in with and read the posts on this forum, and that may continue (he has kidney problems that are completely unrelated to my Meds). But, I wanted you all to know that I love talking to you, value your advice and will always come back despite it being a bit hit and miss. Whenever I can be active, I will be.

Blessings to you all,
Opal

It's good to hear from you opal.  Congrats on the birth.  It's thoughtful of you to touch base with the people here and let them know how you are doing.
