"Poor maternity care needs to be investigated"

About: Newham General Hospital

My wife is currently is the labour as we speak, there is a lot of difficulty with the child yet they are not monitoring this not heart Beat monitor no scans as of yet !! They've kept her in over night but so far I'm appalled by the service!! The way they've kept her in it's better and safer for her to be home than in their !! Looks more of a prison! Seriously needs to be investigated !' To top it off witnessed a woman give birth and child pass way !! I pray this can be sorted and at newham and don't do the same mistake as me and register to newham just pay extra fare and go to royal london it will be worth it !!
