‘Jangan Perjudikan Nyawa Anda & Bayi’ – Dr Amalina Respon Isu Doula Di Malaysia

Hangat mengenai topik Doula, Peneman Ibu atau Pengganti Doktor yang diperdebatkan Prof Dr Imelda Balchin dan Puan Hayati menjadi bahan perbincangan ramai termasuk Dr Amalina Bakri. Rata-rata mengkritik jawapan yang diberikan Puan Hayati didakwa tidak menjawab fakta.
Sehubungan itu, Dr Amalina Bakri memberi respon terhadap perdebatan topik doula ini di akaun Instagram rasminya. Dia turut menasihati rakyat Malaysia agar berfikir terlebih dahulu sebelum bertindak menggunakan perkhidmatan doula ini.

Don’t they have any feelings of guilt and insight at all?

“The goal of education is the advancement of knowledge and the dissemination of truth.”
As medical professionals, we have responsibilities to tell the truth based on statistics and evidence-based medicine and make any decisions based on risks and benefits analysis. Patient safety is our priority. First rule of Hippocratic Oath – Do no harm. It really saddened me (I’m actually furious) when some people like to manipulate the public (either for money or other ulterior motives) by giving inaccurate and false information and indirectly causing potential harm to the community (and they’re not even medically-trained) — this happens a lot in Malaysia among some founders, some celebrities and instafamous selling products. And now the hot topic is – doula (unregistered in Malaysia, practising illegally and doula extremists). Even though I have a medical degree and I did a rotation in O&G as an HO, I am training (Specialist) in General Surgery (Pembedahan Awam), O&G is not my specialty, I won’t and I will not give advice regarding pregnancies. I can’t believe someone who is not even medically trained have the guts to give inaccurate advice to these mothers. Someone’s life is on the line, not just the mother but also the baby. Don’t they have any feelings of guilt and insight at all? Dear followers, please seek knowledge from the experts (O&G Specialists and midwives). I give you an example, if you have a brain tumour, you would expect a Neurosurgeon to operate on you, not an Orthopaedic Surgeon (who deals with bones and fracture) right? If your car breaks down, you go to see a mechanic, not a doctor right? It’s common sense and please use your common sense wisely. 
Please check out my IG stories and highlights about the current hot topic – doula. To new followers, I don’t give personal medical advice on social media as it is against our code of conduct and ethics. Please stop sending me pictures of your scans and parts of your body. Please see a doctor in a clinic/hospital for formal assessments, investigations and consultations. Thank you.

Guna akal sihat untuk berfikir

Dr Amalina Bakri meluahkan rasa terkilan dan sedih apabila wujud beberapa produk perubatan yang didakwanya mampu memanipulasi kepentingan produk kesihatan terhadap orang ramai. Produk-produk kesihatan yang dijual di luar sana berpotensi mengakibatkan kesihatan kurang baik kepada pengguna. Terutamanya produk yang dijual oleh beberapa pengasas, selebriti dan instafamous.
Berhubung topik doula (tidak berdaftar) yang semakin hangat diperdebatkan di Malaysia, dia tida percaya kepada seseorang yang tidak terlatih dalam perubatan, mempunyai keberanian untuk memberikan nasihat tidak tepat kepada golongan ibu.
Risiko yang terpaksa mereka hadapi juga termasuk nyawa ibu hamil dan anak di dalam kandungan. Dr Amalina menyeru kepada pengikutnya di Instagram terutama masyarakat Malaysia agak berfikir sebelum bertindak.

Nyawa ibu dan anak tak boleh dipermainkan

Doula tak boleh wujud dan terlibat dalam proses bersalin

Doula di Malaysia tak dipantau mana-mana badan berkuasa

Sementara itu, Dr Amalina turut respon dan menasihati masyarakat Malaysia agar berfikir terlebih dahulu sebelum bertindak. Tambahnya lagi, doula di Malaysia tidak dipantau mana-mana pihak berkuasa dan tida seperti di UK yang dipantau pihak bertanggungjawab dan mempunyai panduan kesihatan dan SOP tersendiri.
