"Lack of interest in maternity"

About: Warrington Hospital

had my child in January at Warrington. i am still unhappy about that lack of interest i received when i went. from the moment i arrived they were trying to get me out of the door and back home. Apparently I appeared too calm for someone in labour. My concern is that they are too keen to send women home without proper checks. Luckily my son was born without problems as my labour was straight forward. Considering i was sent home for an hour before i went straight back, i consider myself lucky after hearing some recent stories. I would think twice about having another baby there.
