What is supposed to be a happy joyful time with the birth of our first choice, has turned into a stressful miserable experience... None of my parents were allowed to be with us for support because of the riddiculous rules in this place! Not even a waiting room for them so at least i could go and talk... Visiting is a complete joke.. Strictly 2 at a time is realy hard to accomadate everyone who wants to see out new addition, and also leaves us stuck in a tiny room which we have been moved to sharing with another mother and baby.. Impossible to have our 2 visitors and hers, and unable to talk privately... The care is OK... Out newborn we were told would have tests done within 4 hrs of being born because of heridatary conditions.. Wasnt done until over 10 hrs later.. My parents asked to speak with a midwife to clarify things and they were met with attitude! Would not reccomend giving birth here! So stressful, feeling very isolated and cramped.. Not what we were hoping our first few days of parenthood would be like... Cannot express enough how bad it is..
