Heading to TikTok where she uploads as @yasmynswitzerYasmyn said: “I was super nice, even in childbirth I’m not the type to curse the doctors or be confrontational.
“My waters broke, I thought it ruptured about 10 minutes before, so I was in the active pushing part for about 10 minutes.
“The doctor came just after my waters broke and I didn’t want to scream or really be that loud while pushing but kind of moaned when I push my daughter out and I listen to my body.
“In the middle of my contractions, when I push them out and make noise, the doctor says, ‘You have to be quiet so I can hear.’
“It was so rude, I saw this doctor a lot during my pregnancies and she always didn’t have the best bedside manners.
“After that, I passed out for a minute … I was pretty pissed about the whole experience.”
