"never again would I have a premature at button"

About: Queen's Hospital, Burton Upon Trent

i went into Labour on the Sunday early hours at 22 weeks and my waters breaking I rang up and the midwife on the phone was so rude and didn't believe a word I say and demanded I went in a ambulance after telling the midwife I would go in with a family member they put the phone down on me! I had to stay in until my son was born I was placed on a ward with pregnant mums babies crying in the end I was moved to my own side room with a tv to drown out the noise I woke up once with the tv off and remote gone the staff refused to give it me back and made me listen to babies cry for 9hours! I'm the 1st October I went into Labour outside as friends visited and they refused them into the ward I was dragged into a and e resus refused any pain relief and was made to give birth breach to my son when he was born I was 22weeks 6days I was given my son left on the delivery room alone to wait for him to die with a women next door giving birth to a alive crying baby I was not checked on even after loosing a lot of blood and refusing a blood transfusion the hospital told me after he passed away they are sorry for neglecting me should never have happened in the first place!
