"Fantastic midwife and obstetrician. Miserable..."

About: Cheltenham General Hospital

After visiting 26/9/16 to have my 28week growth scan I was spoke. To like a child. My appt was 11 but at 10:55 I was asked where I had been to which I responded to put more money on car park. No reply. I then get told to lie on the bed, move over, name /dofb Edd, and then scan began. No feedback, didn't discuss baby with me at all and took my mum for the experience. A very rude, uptight sonographer who made me feel very edgy and not a pleasant experience for me after the day before having no fetal movements.

I did get informed by a lovely midwife after everything was fine on scan all As to be expected, was there anything I needed to ask or know. Reassured well. I had also added assessment unit to have bloods taken for diabetes to which the team were very attentive and reception staff helpful.
