I am curious, was anybody else made to feel really bad about being overweight/over healthy BMI by the hospital staff and midwives while pregnant? I had private care and my obstetrician was very kind to me and told me i am not as big as some she has seen and i only carry a little extra weight so bubs will be fine. However, the midwife that examined me and weighed me at every visit made a very big deal about my weight and often made comments about how unhealthy it is/was. It really messed with my self esteem and made post baby recovery a real mental struggle. Is that just how all hospitals are or am I alone here?

Going anonymous because a lot of ladies on here know me in person. I suffer with severe body dysmorphia and the last thing I want is them reaching out and asking me about it. I know they have the best intensions but it's just not best for me at this point in time.
