What I liked
I gave birth at Southmeads maternity unit. I was really impressed with the birthing suite & the midwife who deliveried my baby. However the way I was treated on the ward post natal was disgusting. I was made to feel like an inconvienience even though it wasn't busy, and they trying to bully me into treatments that I did not want without a good explanation as to why. I discharged myself and my GP agreed that what they tried to force was not nessicery.
What could be improved
The nurses on the wards attitudes.
Giving birth at southmead was a wonderful experience despite the aftercare.
