About: Kettering General Hospital

poor care. never checked to see how dilated i was b4 pushing, had crash team for both me and baby had a assisted birth and he came out facing up. after the birth i kept bleeding and bleecing they said its normal. i complain of feeling very unwell and still bleeding. hr later still in the same bed full of blood everywhere a team came in to get a clot and to be but on 3 drips as i wait to see if i would need a blood transfusion . poor care midwifes with students that are only just trained as midwifes in my eyes should not be deliverying nor looking after mothers. i would not recommend anyone to go to kgh maternity ward.
