"Gutted with before care"

About: St Richard's Hospital

The care on tang mere ward for my induction was shocking, I barely saw a midwife and was told to go to sleep baby wouldn't arrive till the morning. I got offered no pain relief and was gutted that I had no support. Thanks to the student nurse who persuaded them to check me and by the midwife's face you could tell I was at least 8cm. This care was horrific and I'm gutted I've got to have another baby here as the labour care was so bad. The delivery team and aftercare was great . But excuses won't make up for what should of been a very special time
