Not-so-nice midwives

Letters

PREGNANT women admitted to the labour ward at one of the premier hospitals in the country to deliver their babies have encountered scary, frightening and inhumane treatment by midwives on duty.
The midwives have told pregnant mothers to deliver the babies on their own without assisting and they were also swearing at mothers to keep quiet.
This practice is said to have been ongoing for years. Many have remained silent because they do not know where or how to file their complaints.
This practice should be investigated and stopped immediately.
I commend the handful of midwives who have been doing their job faithfully.
