"Maternity ward neglect"

About: Ipswich Hospital

Anything else?

My fiance was treated teribly during childbirth. The nurses refused to believe how far into labour she was and was given 2 paracetamol tablets for her pain! Our birth plan was not followed, gas and air was refused. It was a living nightmare in their care.

When we have our second child we will absolutly be looking into alternative places of birth. I truely hope no one ever has to go through what we went through.

I have submitted a formal complaint and am currently waiting to hear back from them.
