"worst experience ever"

About: Milton Keynes Hospital

Anything else?

Had my first baby here, left alone for hours before and after even though there were complications. Had at least 5 different midwives in 12 hours. At times door left open so no privacy even though I had epidural and legs in the air unable to move! No choice about intervention, no after care, just left alone for 5 hours after giving birth with a baby who wasn't taking to breast feeding. Stuck on ward for 3 days after with baby being treated like an experiment. No dignity, no peace, no communication and told different things by each person that came to see you! What should have been the most amazing moment of my life left me in tears and terrified.
