What I liked
i liked nothing i was booked into the birthing suite and it was so bad its untrue i had to give birth on a gym mat with a sheet over it i wanted to lie down on my back as trying to give birth on my hands n knees was so tiring but was told no , i wanted to breast feed my daughter but was never shown how to so tried my self 3 hours later, she never took to my breast but feel i was pressured into keep trying but overall i feel i was treated alot better giving birth to my son 2 yrs ago i had 1 midwife n 3 doctors with him but with my daughter i had one midwife between 3 woman
What could be improved
birthing suite to be made more comfortable n relaxing instead of a gym mat with a sheet on iy
