"Upleasant start"

About: Sunderland Royal Hospital

Anything else?

The attitude of a couple members of staff after I had had my child a year ago was down right disgusting. I got treat like a little child, bare in mind I'm an adult, and I can only assume since that this was down to this being my first birth. The delivery staff were kind and helpful, making me feel at home. Then I was moved to the post-natal ward and the nurse in charge of my care was rude. She talked down to me, made me feel like I wasn't looking after my child properly and made me felt like the choices I made concerning my child weren't good enough. After some backing off family and friends, I told her I wasn't happy. A new nurse was put in charge of me and I didn't have a bit of bother off her; she was actually quite nice. My word is, if you're not happy with something say, don't be treat like you don't belong there.
