"Labour and postnatal"

About: Ormskirk & District General Hospital

Had my baby here recently midwives are so far and few between I was left in anti natal ward in labour kept asking to be checked no one would, I'm quite calm in labour until I want to push, checked eventually 9cm

So all rush to la our ward which was very undignified, no bed available for me when I'd had my baby (which I know can't be helped) I was sat in labour room 7 hours post delivery only being checked on once by theatre scrub nurse who I can't fault atall!! No cot for my baby, no water given, ended up on pregnancy assess unit with no food or drink or cot!! Discharged without checks on myself and baby discharge not feeding and missed tongue tie and hip problem ! Really disappointed as care pre pregnancy was great
