"maternity and emergency delivery labour ward"

About: Newham General Hospital

The midwives there especially by night, very very unprofessional and rude. All staff had started to argue with each other whilst I was in extreme labour pain as baby was being pushed out into life. This made me panick. Docters seem too scared to do the epidural procedure. At the ward, whilst exhausted mums trying to rest at night, midwives would play and behave like children and messing around with hospital equipment. I just gave birth there last week Saturday. Never again! They spoilt my special day. I so regret going there to have my baby :(
