"Labour ward"

About: Bassetlaw Hospital

The hospital is too big to have insufficient staffs(mid wife) and consultant. We stayed in for 27 and half hours before my wife could get seen by a nurse nit to even talk of mid wife. Fairly when consultant finally came in to see my wife and asked midwife to set her off straight away by broken her water, mid wife said they will do it and consultant left, they didn't come back to us till the next day, when they finally have the cutesy to talk to us, the told us that no bed space, right before our eyes midwifes has been taking people upstairs that are not even half dilated as my wife. It got to a point I start feeling inferior over setting things I wouldn't want to say on this. Anyway, at the end my wife started bleeding and one of the nurses who attended to her said she's not at risk and ask her to go back to her bed. We started getting consolations from fellow women in labour like my wife. What a shame. The hospital as left me and my family a very big scare in our hearts that will never be leave our heart. Bad and poor attention, bad relationship between nureses (mid wife) and patience, bad communication between nurses and patience. For once I am so ashamed to defend what's from Doncaster.

Very very very very very bad place for dogs to give birth not to talk of humans.
