"I hope the annoying Bounty girl isn't there any..."

About: Worthing Hospital

Worthing maternity care was fantastic during pregnancy, I know they cocked up with the birth as I was referred to a midwife counsellor, but I have a healthy baby so there we go. However, the postnatal ward was not much cop. They tried to discharge me on the same day as I had lost nearly 2l of blood, and I was discharged with no medication (I should have been on low molecular weight heparin for 6 weeks). Rather careless I feel.
