Jelena. Thank you for sharing what is a obviously a very personal story, and for that I can appreciate your suspicions of the medical consultants. I only took exception to your cold blooded remark. I predominantly agree with most of what you say, and off course sympathise with what was obviously a difficult time for you, but that is not to say that all hospital consultants and their staff are wicked and uncaring. Infant mortality rates in Ireland are actually one of the best in the world. That I can only imagine is due to the high level of care given and is not by mistake. Although I am a man, I have been their with my wife for the birth of our son, and fortunately the full pregnancy was without complications. I can say that the midwives were exceptional and my wife was very happy with the maternity hospital.
