"cannot speak to midwife (does the number even..."

About: Hillingdon Hospital

I have tried on many occassions to speak to a community midwife with no luck at all!. I wouldnt bother trying if I were you! I have to attend the hospital for appointments as apparently I am out of area (even though the hospital falls within my GP surgery. I have been told to count 10 kicks in 2 hours which I have since found out if out of date practise and although I had a baby 5 years ago!!! Its like I should know whats happening and shouldnt need any reassurance. I have seen 1 midwife in 27 weeks and had a brief appointment with another who didnt seem to know what they were doing. The care and compassion is lacking completely. I just want to know who I can contact in regards to the safety of my unborn baby! (Yes at 27 weeks she is a baby not just a heartbeat!)
