Over the years there has been many complaints about the way doctors get heaps of freebies from drug and medical equipment companies - funding, gifts, equipment, fancy holidays! Midwives get nothing, especially since we have been banned from accepting advertising material from formula companies who were the only ones interested in giving us anything.
But today my boat came in...the trend has been reversed...I have received a free gift in the post from a drug company. I have finally benefited from my job of being midwife. Those doctors can keep their fancy cars and expense accounts! At last, my chance to be bribed and corrupted by a drug company into unethical behavior!
My free gift...?
A box of powder free rubber gloves from a drug company that makes hemorrhoid cream!
