Woman Told By Doctor To “Be Quiet” During Delivery
A mother revealed on Tiktok that she was told to be quiet while she was giving birth to her third child.
Yasmyn Switzer,20, shared her birth story in a video clip where she explained how her doctors told her to be quiet during the delivery so ‘the doctor could hear.’ The mother of three said she was very quiet and non-confrontational during her labor despite her doctor making the shocking remark.
“My water broke, I thought it broke about 10 minutes before, so I was in the active pushing part for about 10 minutes. The doctor came in right after my water broke then as I’m pushing I am not like screaming or really being that loud but kind of moaning along with when I’m pushing my daughter out and I’m listening to my body.”
She continued, “In the middle of my contractions as I’m pushing her out and making noise the doctor goes ‘I’m going to need you to be quiet so I can hear.”
She said this is not the first time her doctor has made a rude comment as she has a history of poor bedside manner.
“It was so rude, I’ve been with this doctor a lot through my pregnancies and she’s always not had the best bedside manners. I blacked out for a minute after that… I was pretty mad about the whole experience.”
Although her daughter was delivered safely, Switzer was still upset about her experience and her followers gave her different types of advice as reported by the Mirror. Switzer added that she is open to the idea of a home birth if she decides to have more children in the future. “I think I’m done having kids but if I were to have more I’d love to try a home birth with a midwife and doula that I choose and trust,” she wrote in the caption of the video.
