"Maternity nightmare"

About: Musgrove Park Hospital / Maternity

My daughter had been admitted for a pre booked induction due to severe anxiety , even asking for a elected c section , had to wait for someone to get a doctor to do the prescription that the consultant had failed to do, 24 hours still no baby , got told to go back to sleep when her contractions were regular , had to experience a lady give birth next to her on the ward, had the night staff listened at 5am this would not been the case. My daughter is so anxious that the 2 pm bed in labour ward never happened and now at 4.35pm still waiting ... Fuming is not the word.
