"Dreading birth,"

About: Wythenshawe Hospital

I am due my baby on 14/09/15 and am now dreading using this hospital. I have been admitted a number of times for complications in pregnancy. Each time I am told different information about what the issues are, I still have no idea. On 2 occasions I've been told I need a scan to look at placenta and baby's heart, still not had a scan and told we will call you back - this never happens. So after lots of scares and preterm labour I still have no idea what's going on. The hospital should be embarassed! Disgraceful care to the point my notes don't even detail the cocktail of drugs I was given when in preterm labour, so it's reliant on me telling them what baby and me have and haven't already been given, I am not a nurse/midwife, let's hope I didn't miss anything! I would advise anyone who can to avoid this hospital!
