NO IDEA who this blogger is but saw the front page and read her post. While I agree, this is a mega first world/privileged situation, and she likely knew it was a real possibility that she would get a shared room… I gotta admit would never want a shared room during a hospital stay, especially not in recovery after having my first baby.

I recently had my first baby and the hospital system we're in has only private rooms, and are VERY supportive of "rooming in" and the overall post-birth expereince – both parents are expected to stay overnight and the privacy is critical to bonding and infant care, not to mention the very private and vulnerable nature of maternal care. I realize my experience was with one of the best hospitals in the world (I live in Cleveland) and the capacity differences compared to NYC are night and day, but yeah, sharing a room is a foreign concept here. 

Further more, I'm an architect who has designed hospitals for this system and the entire organization is moving towards private rooms for ALL patients, at all levels of care. The research supporting private vs. shared rooms in terms of patient experience and care is staggering – compelling enough for hospitals to spend insaaaaane amounts of money to move towards all private rooms.

I get this blogger is probably a pain in the ass but there's legitimacy in her discomfort, in my personal experience and professional opinion.  

The point is she KNOWINGLY risked not having a private room instead of going with a sure thing just so the baby would be born in NYC. No one is arguing that sharing a room doesn’t suck, but she put herself in that position when it could have been avoided.

Sure, I think it’s safe to say that all of us would agree that a private room would be the preference however promoting the post multiple times by teasing how terrible her post delivery experience was and describing it as “brutal” is what makes me roll my eyes 10000 times over. She went into this knowing that sharing a hospital room was a possibility. The baby was healthy. She was healthy. She was also fortunate enough to give birth in one of the best hospitals in the country just in case, God forbid, something had gone wrong. Instead of focusing on the positives, or even just enjoying life as a new mom she can’t help but to focus on the terrible food and impossibly tiny bathroom. (Though I suppose if she thinks her 1500 sq ft apt is tiny what should I expect.). She’s spoiled and whiney when she doesn’t get her way and she drives my crazy.

Was there some legitimacy in her discomfort? Sure. Maybe. But have some perspective Ali. Your experience was far from brutal.

The comments about breastfeeding were not appropriate but Ali chose to engage in it, why not ignore it?! She also stated she covered up so she wouldn’t be showing her nipples….is she for real?! She has shown quite a bit of her boobs (on her professional page!!!) while feeding the baby. I’m not shaming breastfeeding at all, you do you….but don’t complain about it!

She is definetly a hate read at this point but I can’t look away.

I don't want to click on her post to give her page views, but her reaction makes me so ragey.

My daughter was born in a military hospital. I had a private room while I was in labor and when I delivered, and that was it. We were moved to a semi-private right away. And then, my daughter got very, very sick with a staph infection and we stayed in said semi-private room for 14 days.  

Was the atmosphere loud? Yes. Did nurses come in and out? Yes. Did I care? No. All I worried about was my baby and getting her home.

The amount of privilege makes me dead

Ah, I hear you! Like I said, don't follow her, so I don't have any previous opinion of her and didn't see any of the teasing/promoting a bad experience for clicks – I agree that's snark-worthy. Just piping in with general thoughts on healthcare and the description she gave of her patient experience matches a vast majority of research, spoiled or not.

The point is that Ali CHOSE this hospital (out of many options) knowing the risk of room sharing was there. And I don’t discredit your experience. I had a baby last year and had a private room and 100% would only chose a hospital with this option but Ali chose a hospital in NYC where room sharing could occur and then acted like it was the worst possible thing ever. Some women actually have very serious post-delivery issues and not a “woo is me my bathroom was down the hall and the food wasn’t all certified organic.”

All of the IG stories, “workin’ Mom, workin’ it.” I’m sorry, but no ones cares that you are a working mom. More than half the moms in this country work.

Also ‘we made it through 2 big poopy diapers!’ complete with diaper brand tags. On her biz account, of course.

I actually can’t belive no one on her ‘team’ has pulled her aside and gently told her that:

1) she didn’t invent motherhood; and

2) no one really wants to hear about shitty diapers on a recipe IG account

I don't want to buy her cookbook after seeing that post. I keep irrationally thinking she went straight from changing the diaper to touching the food. Or changed the baby right next to the food. Which of course is not likely (or fair to think), but the idea + the smell is in the back of my head now anyway & ruins my appetite. uh

AND … most don’t have the luxury of taking their baby to work or home from the hospital.
Yes, where the hell is her team to consult her on the two points above? She is so full of herself. “Another cute shot” “Workin mama workin it”
Why does she always film others eating so she can make fun of them? “Another taste test?”

"It was tough going back to work just 5 weeks post-partum, but we did it!!"

She is so insanely out of touch and awful. Her work is a few hour photo shoot that revolves around her. Hair, makeup, food, everything is provided. She's able to bring her baby and take breaks to feed him whenever she needs it. And she has help from her husband and mom. I cannot stand her. For her own good, I hope she never has to deal with real obstacles or challenges.

i agree – i am really annoyed with her posts acting like she's moving mountains.  her mom has been staying with her (again) to help her and she's had a full team of hair, make-up, clothes to help her.  she didn't even have to actually prepare the food for the photoshoot – someone else did it for her and made it look nice and she just had to show up and smile.  

and even when she does go back to blogging, she's going to have a nanny in the apartment with her so she can take a break whenever she wants to hang out with Luca, feed him, take a nap, work out, etc.  she doesn't understand what a working mom goes through to get herself up (way before everyone else) to get ready and then get everyone else fed and ready and out the door before she even starts her day at work.
