started my labour on the midwife-led unit and due to foetal distress was transferred to the delivery unit to give birth. My baby had a dropping heart rate and meconium in the waters. The midwife who transferred and stayed with me for the birth was amazing but the hospital was noticeably short staffed and very busy. It took a long time for a doctor to be present for the assisted delivery and then same afterwards for me to be stitched. The staff discussed those other emergencies needed to be attended to and while remained calm it was obvious that we need more staff and better conditions. I was lucky as there were no complications.
horrific. I picked up an infection - post natal care horrific.
Was transferred to a hospital over 30 miles away but was forced to go.
C Section went wrong - my children weren't breathing properly and they were not considered ill enough to stay at womens. I did not want to go to the other hospital but had no choice - so I was far away from family and friends and this meant I couldn't bond properly with my children, as I was trying to breastfeed.
My control over my own body and that of my children was taken away - I felt dismissed as though I didn't matter.
This is making us consider not having any more children - I would need specialist care if I did because of my health issues. The thought of being shipped off again is not worth it.
Care was excellent before C section.
Was denied information and treatment options for hysteroscopy procedure. Was told G.A sedation no longer used as was deemed unnecessary. Was denied any choice available and pressured into outpatient procedure...
