Stories of mistreatment in hospitals for birthing mothers and child loss due to perceived negligence should never be a #metoo campaign
It baffles me how quality healthcare still remains a privilege in our beautiful South Africa. You either have a couple of grand to pay for medical aid, or you step into the public healthcare system. This is not my own opinion, but I am sure the 1,200 women that die due to issues related to pregnancy would echo the same sentiment. The tens of moms I spoke to in the past weeks are not disagreeing either. They all openly shared their birthing experiences in public hospitals and they all left me emotional and confused.
