An open letter to other medical professionals from a doctor NICU Mum
My name is Eilidh and I'm a first time mum to Ruairidh, who is now 17 months old. I am a doctor who is currently on medical leave for PTSD related to my son's birth.
I have shared below a rant that I wrote on my Facebook in July after attending a radiology appointment for Ruairidh. My rant was long, and it was primarily aimed at my colleagues, but I think it is also useful to give other medical parents of NICU babies an idea of what they don't need to just tolerate and how they can avoid some of the extra trauma.
