After harsh criticism: Now politicians want to ensure better conditions at births


The conditions for new parents in the Capital Region have not been good enough, and too many children and their parents get off to a bad start in life because the maternity wards are too pressured. It now needs to be redone.

It is the conclusion among several parties after prolonged criticism of the conditions at the maternity wards in the Capital Region, where several families report a lack of space, for busy midwives and early repatriation after the birth, which has put pressure on both families and staff.

“The absolute worst weeks of my life that still keep me awake at night,” a woman wrote in a column in Politiken on January 30, about her stay at Rigshospitalet, where she “lost the joy of having a child.”

The woman was admitted to Rigshospitalet’s maternity ward, where the staff was under extreme pressure. One evening, the ward’s 18 beds were filled with 18 women with complicated pregnancies. But only one midwife was at work, and obviously could not manage to help everyone.
