"staff didn't care about general health"

About: Diana, Princess Of Wales Hospital

34 weeks pregnant and severe SPD to the point I can not get up don't sleep have to try and sleep on a chair because I can not lay down I have two other children to care for I went to bed last night in absolute agony tried to get up this morning after being laid awake most of the night that much strain trying to get up and I soiled my self due to try getting up... spoke to constulant and midwife about this and they said there nothing they can do just take painkillers they refered me to physio which they said to me by time you get in you would of had your baby as there is a long wait.... I just think it's disgusting how they can treat you like a dog I did nothing but cry and beg them and it just felt like they was laughing at me.
