"I felt like the maternity staff did not care"

About: Wansbeck Hospital / Maternity care

(as the patient),

Went in to the Wansbeck last November to have my baby, found the staff rude and unhelpful. Was just left to get on with it my sheets were covered in blood I asked for clean ones and I’m still waiting!! staff said I couldn’t have a wash I felt dirty and was left for 2 days without having a bath. I couldn’t get out of bed due to severe blood loss when I was in labour.

I was ready to push and the midwife just walked away and said the baby wasn’t coming it would be midnight before she was here. 3 minutes later she was delivered, this is my third baby so I knew what I was doing. Felt like they couldn't be bothered and didn’t really care. In which case they are in the wrong job! After my experience, if I ever have another baby it will not be at this hospital.
