ON THE CH.4 DOCUMENTARY THE TERM “maternity nurse”, a title which is not recognized by the NMC, is misleading and irresponsible in reducing trust of midwifery. a baby cannot control its body temperature properly and advising parents to leave there newborn in the garden for hours alone even if crying, and alone in the crib without regular checks is damn right dangerous let alone the social aspects of no contact for a newborn.

The fact she claims the title of maternity nurse in connection with a midwife background is misleading and i fear this program may be putting parents at risk of harming their children through ignorance and un-qualified advice, the NMC are also outraged and clearly something has to broadcasted to repair this damage within the media.

Please please chase up this programme on its ethics to repair the damage of the so called childcare expert including her qualifications from a governing body on her current methods of practice.

    Thankyou to the person who wrote this post. I totally agree.

    Are these parents idiots or just so self absorbed that they would not nurse, cuddle, comfort, feed their OWN newborn baby when she is clearly distressed. It is DISGUSTING!

    Newborn babies should be fed on demand, at least to start off with, which is often every 2 hours. Would these 2 adults go 4 hours with nothing to eat or drink - doesn't look like it from the size of them!

    My 3rd child (6 months old now) was born with chronic reflux which I didn't find out until he was nearly 2 months old having suffered through having to sleep with him all night because he was in discomfort.

    A message to those two stupid parents - Even your own daughter knows it's not right and she is just a child.

    GROW UP AND USE YOUR COMMON SENSE - Otherwise go and get a vasectomy so you never have to put another poor baby through what you have done to this poor little bub.

    God I wish I lived next door - I would have reported you both to D.O.C.S. for child abuse. You should both be ashamed of yourselves!

    To think that there are so many couples out there who for no fault of their own cannot conceive children and here we have to adults abandoning a wee baby just so they can sit on their BIG bums and drink wine and laugh about it.

    Are you aware that there has been studies done which now link problems later in life with failure to comfort and nurture your baby. IDIOTS!
