I had severe preeclampsia with my 2nd pregnancy, and almost died. The doctors told me it was not in my best interest to have more children.
When I found myself pregnant again a few years later, we were struggling to make a decision on what to do: try to carry full term, and most likely die.. Or terminate and live. I ended up having a miscarriage. While at the hospital, the (white) ultrasound tech was brutally cold and almost physically violent toward me. I was crying and gushing blood, and she had the nerve to ask me, “Why are you crying? It’s not like you wanted this baby anyway?”, and left me sitting in a pool of blood.
To this day, I wish I hadn’t been so sick at the time and been able to follow up on reporting her.
