"antenatal care"

About: Barnsley Hospital

I had a fantastic experience with my son here three years ago. However this time I cannot say the same at all. A tricky pregnancy and had three mis carriages before this bundle. After my last one I was left with severe back pain and have psd and suffered severe morning sickness since 8 weeks.

The consultant i saw today was very unhelpful and dismissed everything I said with 'babies are resilliant'. That may be so but it takes me almost an hour to dress as i am in that much pain with my back. At 36week I am still waiting for assistance with my birthpan. This time everything is so disorganised which doesn't help my fears!
