The care of the delivery team was fantastic. The negatives were:
- Ward cleanliness, toilets were disgusting, only seemed to get cleaned once a day.
- I was given contradictory advice by various staff. I.e. delivery team swaddled my baby after birth, nurse on ward told me off - even thought I hadn't swaddled her! Same with feeding, told I should be feeding every 3 hours, yet another nurse told me that if I've fed 3 times within the first 24 hours then that's excellent!! Confusing for a first time mum!!!
