"Maternity is a joke"

About: Calderdale Royal Hospital

Rang the maternity triage because of reduced movements they told me to go in so when I areived I was stood pressing the bell for 20 minutes whilst one midwife was looking in a cupboard in the corridoor . Once inside not one member introduced their selfs to me they just took my notes off me and left me in the corridor . After 2 hours I was seen to be told if your worrying now what you going to be like in the latter stages ? She Deffo knew how to put a 1st time mum Down
