I gave birth at the Leicester General Hospital.
Some of the midwives were so rude. I had a C-section and needed aftercare. The ones I met treated me like dirt, like I was a bother to them.
As a first time mum, I was overwhelmed by just having a baby and the midwives made me feel very small.
The doctors were great though. One senior midwife was the rudest and when I asked a question she treated me like I was am imbecile. I am reluctant to have another baby as a result of those bad memories.
I was a first time mum who had a c-section, I needed care and understanding. I think the training of midwives should stress the importance of caring as a vocation.
