"delivery suite"

About: Queen Charlotte's Hospital

I had a very bad experience here, delivering my second baby. I had 4 different midwifes in 9 hours and was continuously alone and with out help, even when I called for a midwife they took a long time to come and then they would say they were coming back and they would not be back. i cried and cried for months after the baby was born, i was angry at how badly treated i was and how dangerous it was if some thing had gone wrong. I wrote a letter of complaint to the ward manager to help release some of the negative emotions that i was having and to try to improve things for others having babies. and also to help me move forward and put my experiences behind me. i do not want to be bitter.
