Lisbon’s maternity unit will be the main go-throw on Bank Holiday weekends

“Baby comes when ready”: It’s a saying that you can often see mothers in Lisbon wanting their babies not to choose at any time between Saturday and next Monday.

Two-thirds of the capital’s maternity wards will be completely closed on bank holiday weekends (ie, “do not accept pregnant women”) or “in case of contingency” (ie, minimal). It is operated (with the service of).

SIM, a doctor’s syndicate, admitted that June 11-13 “may be a difficult day to give birth,” and said “I’m lamenting the Ministry of Health’s silence.”

SIM and the Ministry of Health have a long history of standoffs. Syndicate president Jorge Roqueda Cunha, former PSD MP, told Radiolena Sensor today that the latest drama “has nothing to do with Bank Holidays.” This is a structural issue, “while the Ministry of Health’s idea is to not change doctors’ salaries and invest in social media, the Minister of Health continues to say that there is no problem.

“The situation only gets worse,” he added.

However, Roque da Cunha appealed for a proper consideration of the issue. When propaganda goes against reality, reality always wins“.

Meanwhile, the next few days for pregnant mothers may probably be annoying. The SIM president admits that the situation is “worried.”
