"gave birth"

About: Royal Oldham Hospital

I gave birth to my only child on the 11/10/14 I got looked down on by midwifes and lost the opportunity to breast feed due to him not being put on me or fed for 5hrs after birth I gave birth at 12.50 midwife left after stitching then nobody came back until 6am to take me to the ward and when on ward I got left on my own no help with trying to breast feed my son didn't eatmuch in 2 days due to me trying to learn how to breastfeed alone and resulted in formula milk instead which 19 days on I'm still heartbroken about! Only 2 midwife that was nice to me and I only seen them once terrible experience wont be returning!!
