Post natal care horrific

Pre natal care was excellent. I had a C Section - horrific. I picked up an infection - post natal care horrific. Was transferred to a hospital over 30 miles away but was forced to go. C Section went wrong - my children weren't breathing properly and they were not considered ill enough to stay at womens. I did not want to go to the other hospital but had no choice - so I was far away from family and friends and this meant I couldn't bond properly with my children, as I was trying to breastfeed. My control over my own body and that of my children was taken away - I felt dismissed as though I didn't matter. This is making us consider not having any more children - I would need specialist care if I did because of my health issues. The thought of being shipped off again is not worth it. Care was excellent before C section.
