"Very good service"

About: Royal Free Hospital

Anything else?

I had my daughter on emergency c-section,I thank to all the midwifes and doctors,they were really nice and caring. The only pro is that,is not the hospital fault or the staff, is just how the system is,that when a labour is not progresssing,they should offer a scan, and see if the person can have normal delivery, instead of going for longer hours and induction which in my case wasn't really good as after i was discharged from hospital I developed high blood pressure and had to stay in hospital for another 3 days,and I'm pretty sure it was because all the drugs,specially the induction's one plus all the others I had for c-s and afterwards, in ny case I wasn't dilating and then i pushed for nearly 2 hours and nothing happened, I am sure this can of thing can be easily avoided offering a scan and see what's the position of the baby or if the hips are too small for the baby to come out, it will save time and money. But as I said this is just how the system is, the midwifes were really nice,all of them. I was lucky to be reffered to the Royal,as i had heard very nasty things from other hospitals, Thanks to all of you!!
