I phoned my friend this evening to wish her a Merry Christmas & ask how her pg was going. My best mate is 41+5 weeks pg & a midwife came to do a sweep but it was'nt her regular midwife. She told her the usual that she should go into labour very soon blah blah, however, they said that with her DD 1 and she ended up getting to nearly 43 weeks & had to be induced.

The midwife told my friend that the best way to get into labour is to have sex but to swallow is more effective, my friend said "what do you mean by swallow" and she said "you know, oral". She wan't even laughing about it either.

I really cant believe a trained professional would say something like this. Should she report this midwife? I told her she should. I would be furious. Is she being unreasonable to report her because of this comment?

At least with this one there is a huge cloud in the opening post to indicate its a zombie. It's August, and she's phoning to wish a merry Christmas.

Which is nice, because for once I checked the thread date before posting!

Before being reanimated, Willow.

Agree Clumsy. I didn't bother to check the date on this thread but I knew it must be an old one as old posters who are no longer around were on the thread.

Sure she's got over it by now confused Probably busy getting her 10 year old ready for back to school.

Oh don't be such a prude. While the MW could have explained herself better she was still correct.

10 years ago it was weird for a midwife to talk about oral sex but now I'd be surprised if some didn't even help out with it.

Yeh iv noticed that ( when searching for old woo threads blush ) the date on the search comes up as 2017 even if the thread hasn't been active for years . Obviously you can check the date on the actual thread but think some people just read the op and then reply

To be fair this is a classic and it's fun to see how times move on. 10 years ago it was weird for a midwife to talk about oral sex but now I'd be surprised if some didn't even help out with it.

Glowinginthedark Tue 29-Aug-17 09:24:01

The 'Merry Christmas' part is a bit of a give away, and then surely your eyes drift towards the date?!

Willow2017 Tue 29-Aug-17 09:03:41

Is that before or after they have been reanimated though?

Ivymaud Tue 29-Aug-17 08:38:00

I think (at least I've found) if you do a google search for information, some of these Mumsnet threads are comiing up with a 2017 date next to them, so you when you click you're not necessarily going to double check. Might explain why there have been quite a few zombie threads around

Willow2017 Tue 29-Aug-17 08:32:34

How the hell do people find a 10 yr old thread?
Why?

BoobleMcB Tue 29-Aug-17 08:29:14

I feel OP needs to come back and let us know if friend took the advice or not and if it worked 😂

Don't know where the extra "not" came from there.

Namechangearoo Tue 29-Aug-17 08:21:10

Did this not zombie thread just show up to torture me because I'm 40+5 and thought I was desperate to try anything?

Apparently I'm not quite desperate enough for that though, just made an involuntary boak face envy

As an aside, I wouldn't be offended if my MW had suggested this...

PurpleDaisies Tue 29-Aug-17 08:09:40

Look at the date!!!

ZOMBIE ALERT

Migraleve Tue 29-Aug-17 08:09:37

Oh ffs

Migraleve Tue 29-Aug-17 08:08:07

Omg I can't believe anyone could be so offended by this.

It was a flippant comment, just like 'eating a ton of pineapple could help' - both things help but neither comment would be intended with ANY seriousness whatsoever.

You do know the difference between a comment and an order surely?

The child will be almost 10 grin
