"Terrible antenatal care"

About: Frimley Park Hospital (Frimley)

I recently had my baby at Royal County Surrey Hospital after requesting a transfer in my 38th week of pregnancy following a complete breakdown in confidence with FPH. My anxieties were not dealt with, I was not offered any counselling, introduced to any midwives, shown around the maternity facilities or given any support in the run up to the impending birth. I found the doctors unsupportive and deaf to my concerns. They did not offer any way forward, did not appear to follow NICE guidelines and seem to be focussed on targets/budgets rather than the patient. In the end I felt completely abandoned - a truly awful experience.
