hello everyone.

I am not a mum or mum-to-be. I am a student nurse from Newcastle. I was just hoping someone would be able to help me with an assignment due to be handed in next week
I have to give an account, from the patient/client perspective of the role of the midwife. So basically I need someones story of their midwife during and after there pregnancy. Whether it is a positive or nagative experience. In depth detail would be good, seeing as I have to write 2000 words.

*Please can someone help me*

It would be much appreciated. Thank you.

Starbear Sat 13-Jun-09 11:15:22

I'm not sure I can put it on my fly list! I'm really lazy.

Starbear Sat 13-Jun-09 11:18:14

Wolfcub Sat 13-Jun-09 12:05:50

good morning ladies

I was so physically and mentally exhausted when I finished work last night that I could barely hold my head up straight - much improved now but still feeling somewhat exhausted and flat


bathroom s &s
washing machine on
bed stripped
kitchen tidied and cleaned a smidgen
wm unloaded, reloaded and on
washing out
back door wiped down outside - still not clean but decidedly improved
rubbish out
milk bottles out

spent hour dealing with ds having a major meltdown. I now have bruised arms and chest but he is asleep - thank god for Ivor the Engine stories.

TheMadHouse Sat 13-Jun-09 12:33:04

wolf sounds so like DS2 - he had a complete meltdown last week - tipped over chairs etc, had to put in bedroom nad let him thrash it our, as I couldnt hold him.

It happened again last night, as he didnt want cream on his rash - 40 mins - DH tried to hold him, he raged so much he made him self sick and nearly passed out from holding his breath - he went blue.

My mother thinks I exagerate the issue, now DH has witness one of the tantrums, he has to believe me. They are so hard to deal with. We never had this with DS1 and I thought we had excaped the terrible two's with DS2 as he is three in 2 weeks, but I was soooooooo wrong sad

I am sorry that you are finding things exhausting at the moment - you must feel pulled in all directions.

Try to have a relaxing weekend - if that is at all possible

Wolfcub Sat 13-Jun-09 12:44:07

mad I think we have the same child!

swanriver Sat 13-Jun-09 12:53:51

Those tantrums are really frightening aren't they?
With dd it is like she is thrashing out some issue to with dependence and independence all the time. She wants really close contact yet she doesn't want to feel so "bossed around" for want of a better phrase. It is almost as if she wants to be the baby cuddled and cherished, yet also she knows she wants to be free and make her own decisions without criticism or judgements. She wants to know what the boundaries are - that makes her feel safe, but she wants to know that her ideas about things are respected.

Anyway her foul behaviour yesterday has turned out to be illness. She is now asleep on sofa...

Otherwise, a nice morning going to music, chatting with friends.
Casserole in oven, and roast potatoes
rice pudding

Kids have gone for a bike ride.

swanriver Sat 13-Jun-09 12:55:40

Sleep over sounds a wonderful new venture Starbear
Tort, sorry about Bob.

swanriver Sat 13-Jun-09 12:56:51

Ooh she's woken up now, and started Moaning again..just going to clear up preps and then sit with her.

Been to the recyling dump TWICE with garden clippings
feel very pleased with myself, but managed to acquire some small items from another tipper..hmm

nearby friend's 40th party this evening - dh and I will take it in turns to go, thus avoiding stress of babysitter (who I haven't managed to find)
now I'll take boys swimming I think
then have to make effort to look glamorous

TheMadHouse Sat 13-Jun-09 18:01:21

Just to say we are going to sleep in the tent - will post pictures of our new baby tomorrow - have a nice evening all

I have only come home to get a few bits we need!!!

scattyspice Sat 13-Jun-09 19:51:34

Have a good camping trip mad smile.

Hope everyones having a good weekend (hayfever and tantruming toddlers aside hmm).

Have been into town again today (actually went twice, as i took some photos to Boots to be developed and forgot to pick them up blush). Bought present for mum, more wool for me and sorted library tickets.

I have also bought a popcorn maker grin. DC are now watching Magic roundabout and eating popcorn.

I have also done:
ds homework (with no help from dh who maintains that he shouldn't have to do homework tsk!).

Hopefully have a day out somewhere tomorrow.

galen Sat 13-Jun-09 20:20:21

mad enjoy the tent!
scatty yay for popcorn machine. I love the Magic Roundabout...did have the DVD but one of DC scratched it....must get it again..grin

Wolfcub Sat 13-Jun-09 21:43:51

grouchy sounds like a plan to me. I am also on leave the week after next with no major plans except going to see sick friend on one day and wedding of another friend on the friday so ds and I could take you out for coffee and a bun if there's a day you aren't too busy

mad sleeping in the tent will be fun. We are considering going for a Yurt holiday!
