"very bad birth experience"

About: Watford General Hospital

I had a very bad delivery experience.

I will spare all the delivery story, but I was not very pleased by the doctors.

I was kept 6 hours in sever pain "after the birth" for an internal blood clought.

The member of staff was not cooperative and treatment with no mercy. Every time I would ask to relieve the pain they would looked me and my husband so annoyed.

After few days from the delivery I became severally anemic and with a terrible infection.

I was on iron tablets for 4 months and on antibiotics for 3 weeks.

I tried to request the notes of my delivery, but I never received a response.

I had postnatal depression and I was only offered few sessions as the counselling service was discontinued.

I felt left without care. I felt literally like piece of meat. I felt disrespected.

Now I'm pregnant again and I'm looking for another hospital.

I really suggest to stay away from that hospital!!
