The Shrewsbury and Telford NHS Trust maternity scandal and my daughter, Verity

I certainly do no not want to make hay from this horrific scandal, as so many women and babies needlessly died or were permanently damaged, but wish to point out to my errant and ungrateful daughter, Verity, if she ever reads this, is that I had not spotted that the midwife was cocking up and if I had not threatened to sue to the hospital, a doctor would not have come in and taken over and Verity would be dead or severely brain damaged, as the umbilical cord was strangling her.

Not only would I have lost my daughter if I had not acted but I would have lost my wife, Verity’s mother too. But neither of them care a damn

VERITY AND HER MOTHER WOULD HAVE BEEN JUST ANOTHER STATISTIC, JUST LIKE THE SHROPSHIRE DEATHS and none of the things that have happened to me over the last 6 years would have happened and I would be in a completely different place now.

It may seem a horrible thing to say but I now wish that I had not called for the doctor and that both of them would have died; at least I would now have a life but that was not the path that I chose, as my I dearly loved my then wife and daughter and it was the right thing for a loving future father and husband to do, even though I had not clue then if it was a boy or a girl.

This has so upset me, as it has dragged up the painful memories of Verity’s birth and the grotesque path that Verity has taken that I have to go to bed now and shut off; my brain cannot take any more.
