The mum-to-be’s post sparked an angry response on Reddit, with many encouraging her to report the nurse for misconduct.

In her post, the woman said this was the first dealing she’d had with this nurse at her obstetrician’s clinic.

“I’m having my first baby soon and my OBGYN is on vacation,” she explained.

“I tried to make sure I had all my questions asked before she went, but something came up this week and I figured I would just ask the on-call doctor.

“When I got to the clinic for my check-up, the nurse came in and after the usual I asked if I could talk to the on-call doctor.

“She said they were running behind and might not be able to see me today so she asked me what the problem was and said she could help or determine if I really needed to talk to the doctor.”

The mum-to-be said the conversation turned sour when she started talking about her piercing.

“I asked her what I should do about my CHP (which is an NSFW area piercing I’ve had for six-plus years),” she said.

“She looked at me blankly so I elaborated.

“She then kind of rolled her eyes and told me that she wasn’t getting the on-call doctor to ask about that and I would need to figure out what to do with my body jewellery on my own.

“I told her I would really like to get the doctor’s take on it so I was going to need her to ask or let me talk to the doctor.

“She went on the computer for a minute and typed a bit and then said that I need to just take it out and that’s what the clinic protocol said.

“I asked her if I could put a retainer in to keep it safe to replace it after birth and she told me I should take the opportunity to ‘let go of trashy piercings and leave it since I was becoming a mum.’

“I was SHOCKED.”

‘Kinky stuff’

The Reddit user said she’d since been told that it was wrong of her to talk to the nurse about her “kinky stuff”.

“When I told my friends about it most of them were shocked too, but another friend who is studying to be a nurse said it was rude of me to make her uncomfortable,” she said.

The friend also told her that it “would be wrong of me to report her or anything because it’s not her job to have to listen to unsolicited information about ‘kinky stuff’.

She also told the mum that she was “violating her consent in that conversation which is something that happens too often to medical workers.”

After hearing that feedback, the pregnant woman reached out to Reddit users asking for advice on whether she was out of line.

Thousands responded, the vast majority supported the mum-to-be and encouraged her to take action against the nurse.

“I would have reported that nurse immediately if I were [the mum-to-be],” said one.

“I’m super appreciative of healthcare employees especially during COVID times but this is totally inappropriate and unacceptable. I’m honestly outraged.”

Wrote another: “Nurse chiming in here – it may not be ‘her job’ to know about ‘kinky stuff’ but it’s 100% her job to make sure she can offer you a reasonable solution that doesn’t involve being rude or condescending.

“100% report her a** because too many people get away with s*** like that. Besides – she’ll most likely only get a slap on the wrist.”

‘File a complaint’

Another mother who experienced in a similar situation offered this perspective.

“I’ve had the same piercing. Kept it in until I was in labour,” she wrote.

“My nurse asked my family in the room to leave to place a catheter. Told me I would need to remove it in case of surgery if something went wrong.

“She had a container for me to place it in. She even removed it for me because my stomach was too big. Said she didn’t want to say anything in front of my in-laws.

“I put it back in the day after giving birth.

“File a complaint or report the nurse you had!”
