Birth Stories with Clemmie Hooper

Pessaries and sepsis with Candice Brathwaite

av Birth Stories with Clemmie Hooper | Publicerades 9/17/2019

Candice was told at 38 weeks that her baby was likely to be born by section, but she was induced and went through a long labour when her baby became overdue. She tells Clemmie how the doctors took her to the very edge of labour before performing an emergency section, and then how, catastrophically, her post-surgery pain was ignored, leading to life-threatening sepsis. Candice and Clemmie discuss the black birthing experience and the results of the MBRRACE report, which showed that in the UK, black mothers are five times more likely to die in childbirth than their white counterparts. They also take a question about post-birth debriefs. Candice’s book I’m Not Your Baby Mother is available to pre-order now.
