What I liked

nothing at all

What could be improved

actually letting you get assessed and not treat you like a child.

Anything else?

started on monday with severe pains and lost my mucas plug, phoned labour ward and they transferred me on phone to maternity assessment unit.

they told me when pains get worse ring back up which i did that night and they diognosed me over phone with spd. saw my own midwife on tuesday and she said that it wasnt spd and that she thought id have my baby that night.

pains have got so much worse over few days and started leaking water on the friday, maternity assessment unit said that ive to stop ringing and take cocodamol as unless all my waters have gone i cant go up.

its the monday after it started and i cant sit or stand up and in agony and got told over phone that im wasting their time even though after 2 kids im in labour! also im a neo natal alert so im worried for baby.
