Krysia Lynch from AIMS will be on LMFM sometime today to discuss maternal death in Ireland….It is "supposed" to be rare in the developed world yet there are a handful of cases in just the past few years.
I am amazed how cursed that hospital is!April 28, 2011 at 8:00 am #112644CaliGalMember
Ironically just saw this headline: Doctors are most trusted professionalsApril 28, 2011 at 8:07 am #112645JenniferAMember
So sorry for the family. It increases the fear of giving birth when you know this could happen. Very scary.April 28, 2011 at 10:19 am #112646
Doctors are most trusted professionals?? In the miscarriage misdiagnosis report every mistake was made by a consultant – not one was misdiagnosed by a midwife. what does that say???
I used to write down my questions when I was going to my hospital appointments and I knew I was annoying the doctors by asking so many questions but I needed information and was going to get it, so I didn’t care. Atthe end of the day, I am just a statistic to them, its upto us to ask questions and get the information we need. I would not put all my trust in a doctor – after so many misdiagnoses personally, I am very wary. I believe they do their best most of the time but there is still the ‘God complex’ issue where some of them do not like to be challenged and also, they are so busy with our stretched system that they miss things – so we have to be pushy sometimes to get the care we need.
This is so very sad, that poor woman and her family. Really tragic, that little baby is without its mammy. 🙁April 28, 2011 at 10:48 am #112648Financial CompanionParticipant

very sad, my thoughts are with her family and friends may they get through the difficult times ahead….
we had this conversation ironically the other day, a journalist friend of mine based in the middle east, we spoke about having babies etc and how much it is on a woman….
we have a great health system yes it has it flaws (not going into detail regards deaths etc especially on this case)
but my friend attended a so called hospital in Afganistan and she said the conditions were horrific, 1 in 3 women there die in childbirth and most infants die within weeks or even days of being born due to infections and disease…..
the 2 births she witnessed thankfully the mother survived the first childbirth but sadly the baby died, another the mother died and the baby survived….very very sad
we have to be grateful for what we have but in this day and age, something so natural in the world should not cause as much pain and suffering and loss as it does…
my thoughts are with this lady and her family…may she rest in peaceApril 28, 2011 at 7:40 pm #112659AlmaeMember
my god , that is just awful… so so so sad.April 28, 2011 at 8:17 pm #112662
