"Rude midwife"

About: The Royal London Hospital

I recently gave birth at this hospital. The midwife in the delivery suite was extremely rude and unhelpful. They were cold and had a very uncaring attitude even when I was in extensive labour pain. . In fact when I was shifted in the postnatal ward I quickly realised that rudeness & poor administration is part & parcel of that hospital. I strongly advise expectant mums to keep away form their maternity ward as I had an unforgettable experience.
