About: The James Cook University Hospital The James Cook University Hospital Middlesbrough TS4 3BW
My review is only regarding the maternity services at this hospital. My daughter was thankfully born healthy, and i can only thank the staff for this. However, i found myself feeling ignored as a mother because ' it's the baby that matters now'. I was obviously greatly concerned for my babies safety, but i felt my wishes were ignored and felt more like cattle than a person. One midwife had a terrible attitude, and was, on more than one occasion, quite rude.I felt she didn't want to be there. Unfortunately, i had an epidural, which contained Fentanyl and Bupivacaine which meant i was slightly drowsy and unable to ' fight my corner', which, unfortunately,i felt i needed to do. I would love more children, but after the experience from certain members of staff at this hospital, have decided not to.
