"Half and half"

About: St Peter's Hospital (Chertsey)

The new Birthing centre was amazing I can't fault them at all, I felt really relaxed and was able to chill out, it amazed me how much this felt like home.

However when I got moved to the maternity ward it was a very different story, I was treated very unfairly, I was given care I never needed and put through unnecessary hassle and pain, my son was put through hell and I actually got more stressed in there. It got to the point where I called a friend to get me out .
