Post subject: health visitors
hi, i ve jus taken my daughter for her 16 wk injections and im so angry,
i took baby in to be weighed and there was another health visitor there,
1st she said my baby had conjunctivitus because she had red marks on her eyelids, she dosn't! , she was born with stork marks, stupid woman, surly she could see that her eyes wern't infected,
then she told me about a parent and child center, she said i could go there and leave my 16 wk old baby in a crech, and do some learning courses!
i said i wasn't interesed, she then said i should go to get some basic work skills so i could go back to work, so i didn't have to claim benefits,
by then i was furious!
i ve got 11 gcse's a-c and 4 a-levels, i ve also been a manager in every job i ve been in, so i dont need any work skills,and my husband has a very good job so there is no need for me to work, we own our own house, cars, etc and dont go without anythin, i told her this then walked out, furious!
i dont understand why people always tar young mothers with the same brush,
sorry to go on im just so angry

I so don't understand this whole 'young mum' thing anyway. Step back 40 to 50 years and all women wanted was to be 'in the family way' by the time they were 20 - they seem to forget that now of course. They're all 60 years + now so of course mums look young to them now!!! Everyone looks young to them now!!!

I have the opposite problem - i've been told as an 'older mum' i'll probably be more practical. Older mum! Excuse me but i'm only 31!!!

My midwife talks to me like a kid too, she's a right patronising moo. Don't think it has anything to do with our age, just their choice of profession!

I think there's something in their training that makes them like that - maybe they have to pass an exam in patronising talk downs. Laughing
