"Ambulance crew"

About: Royal Berkshire Hospital

Anything else?

Been brought to RBH Maternity Unit on 5th of September 2013,by ambulance as was bleeding heavily 30 week in to my pregnancy.When the crew arrived-they were aware I was heavily pregnant even though i live on the second floor I've been asked to walk (!!) to the ambulance !! There is lots of different reasons for bleeding in pregnancy but one of the worse one that I was really scared about it's detaching placenta-in that case I should move as less as possible as every move can make it worse.Ambulance guy didn't really cared about that and I've been asked to walk again to delivery suite. The care in there though was very nice I cannot complain .It's been decided I should stay overnight until bleeding settles and been moved to Iffley Ward. Care in Iffley ward was 7 out of 10. Every time I've been asked to do a urine sample I had to wait ages for someone to come and get it (finally decided to get it to the main desk myself) I was discharged next day and doctor advised that baby's heart rate should be checked before I go home which wasn't done as well.
