"C section breach baby"

About: Whipps Cross University Hospital

Not very pleased with my experience, during my pregnancy everything was looking and feeling great but from 38 weeks I struggled with pains and slight bleeding I took myself to whips cross triage a number of times they started to get to know me. Well I was 41 weeks and 4 days and I had enough of pain they needed to do something about it. So on the Monday 23rd of feb 2015 10am took myself into triage had a look a my bleeding checked the heart beat everything was great until the mid wife felt my belly saying omg I think your breach. So it took 41 weeks for them to discover this I was in total shock as you also get checked every two weeks on top of me going to triage weekly lol. So they sent me home strangely as I'm ready to pop!! And booked me in for c section on Wednesday the 25th. Well 2.05am Tuesday morning my waters break so I called the ambulance as it was all blood!! They took me to hospital and had to wait till 9.30 that morning to go down. It was all too fast and crazy! Wouldn't have another baby there. And to make it worse my partner or mum couldn't stay to help me I had to press a button for a midwife to come and feed and change my baby and when she's chocking on her own sick wait for a midwife coz I'm unable to move I think it's wrong!
