"Poor care on maternity ward"

About: Wexham Park Hospital / Maternity

(as the patient),

The lady next to me with her partner were begging for attention for 2 hours, after abusing the gas so badly that she started to have a problem with talking.

She was begging for epidural, nobody listened to her, she was saying I am gonna push, and the lack of the attention from the midwives I saw sitting at reception doing absolutely nothing to support her, not even talking to her, anything.

Lady in next bed crying from not being able to listen to the noises any more, herself having problem with pregnancy.

So do I. I've definitely made my mind up never to come here again! So sad, to see some people don't seem to care.
