"Midwife at triage made me feel extremely..."

About: Wexham Park Hospital / Maternity

The midwife at triage came across very rude and didn't seem to know what was going on. When the midwife asked to check my pad as I was in for a suspected water leak I went to the toilet to take it off for them to see and they barged in and wouldn't let me take it off in privacy. It felt very uncomfortable and invasive. Then when I went to the waiting room to get my notes to go home the midwife wasn't subtle about anything going on with me and was near enough shouting what they were saying which made me feel uncomfortable as the waiting room was full with other patients and their male partners.
