"VBAC is a joke"

About: Liverpool Womens Hospital

After being booked in for a c section after discussion at 32 weeks, I was told after my pre op assessment it was never booked. I'd arranged childcare and everything for the date initially given then was phoned to say it wasn't possible only after it was queried in pre op clinic. I was then told by the nurse who supposedly booked it initially I would be fitted in as an extra after a day of stressing out. Only to be told the following day that I wouldn't be seen until the Friday after being assured again it would be the Monday.

All this from the midwife who was there to ensure I didn't go through the level of stress and trauma I had with my first from being being overdue!

Absolute joke!
