"Worst maternity ward ever"

About: Leeds General Infirmary

Completely useless midwives. My daughter was born nov 2014, and had to go straight to neonatal - these nurses we're amazing can't thank them enough for what they did for her. Myself - I was treated awful. Was put in a room to recover never checked on me. Then moved onto maternity ward - they first wanted to put me with mums&babies (my daughter was in surgery so pleaded to be in my own room as was very upset) never checked me at all after having a c section and very rude. Wound became infected and they wouldn't see me because I was 3 weeks post partum.
