My baby was taken to the NICU a day after she was born in May. Understandably I was upset and when I first visited her there I rang my own mother for support. I was told off by the nurse as I shouldn’t be on my phone despite being in obvious distress about the baby being in the NICU. This continued throughout the day with the nurses poor attitude and despite only recently having had a c-section I was expected to lift a heavy chair over to actually be able to sit beside my baby even though I asked for help. Although the other members of staff were lovely I found the nurse in charge that first day very abrupt and unable to have any empathy for a distressed mother. I was glad my baby was only in there two days as the midwives on the ward where much better and caring.
