"Induction on ward 11 and emergency c -section"

About: James Paget University Hospital

I was attended to ward 11 on the 27th may to induce my labour as I was term plus 12with my first baby. The day before my consultant provided a membrane sweep but did not work. I spent 48 hours on ward and my cervix was only 2 cm dilated and ctg showed bad fetal heart rate and no regular contractions. The doctor on shift decided to send me to theatre for c-section where I delivered safely a healthy baby boy on the 29/5/15 thank you to the enthusiastic and professional team lead by the nurse. I would like to thank you to the whole staff of ward 11 and central delivery ward.
