I went into natural labour but due to unforeseen scar tissue my cervix would not dilate and I was in active labour for 3 days and taken down for an Emergency C-section when the baby and myself was in distress.
My C-section took over 5 hrs to be completed due to scar tissue and struggles getting into me that in the end they used hands to rip the scar tissue to get my daughter out. I underwent general surgery that day and was placed back onto the maternity unit.
What happens next is how I got my first ileostomy. Within two days of having my daughter I contracted sepsis, faecal peritonitis and pneumonia. They had perforated my bowel and fistula during the C-section and hadn’t repaired the damage as it was missed.
