"My daughter had a planned ceserean on 9/1/2015"

About: The Tunbridge Wells Hospital

My daughter had a planned ceserean on 9/1/2012 at 12 lunch time. She was being very sick which the staff knew about. Her partner was told to go home the nurses would look after her. Not one nurse, doctor or any one else came near her. She was left all night to fed and look after her baby, lift her out of the cot and breastfeed her. Also no one looked at her stitches. The next day the staff wanted to chuck her out but she said no. She went home on the Sunday. The whole time she was there her stitches were checked twice. Once when she told the nurse you haven't checked my stitches. Someone reading this going to Pembury to have a baby should think very carefully.
