"Great birth experience, but aftercare was awful "

About: Royal Preston Hospital / Maternity

(as the patient),

Had a great birth experience at royal preston hospital (sharoe green unit) the thing that ruined the experience was the after care.

When I walked to the ward very swollen just an hour after the birth of my daughter I was just left there, with all my bag and stuff all over the place.

Staff left me in my own blood and just give me a spare sheet to change the bed myself and I had no support breastfeeding.
