Recently, I had an appointment to see the doctor for a high risk clinic appointment.
I had an ultrasound beforehand.
I saw the midwife first and she took my blood pressure and made some notes. She walked me in to see the doctor (whom I had not met before).
I sat down in the chair and the doctor looked at the midwife and asked why I would be a high risk patient. The midwife explained I was carrying twins.
The midwife then asked me a question and I felt the doctor talked over her.
I tried to explain my history to the doctor and again I felt he kept talking over me and not listening to anything I was saying.
I tried to ask some questions in relation to my care and when I should look at stopping work. The doctor said that I should look at transferring to light duties as of the following week. I tried to explain that I was feeling well and that I would like to continue as long as possible. (We live on a very remote station and Broome hospital is 4 hours away.) He did reason that if I was in town, then I could work up until I went into labour. I tried to tell him that this wasn't my first pregnancy or first twin pregnancy but I felt talked over again.
I left the doctors office and went back into the other office with the midwife and expressed how I wasn't happy with the doctor.
