My first time mother experience in WGH was a total nightmare after my emergency section and I would not recommend first time mothers to attend that ward if CQC or Pals have not had a quiet word with the healthcare staff.
I found the healthcare staff very unprofessional, unhelpful, constantly had attitude issues and complained out loud in front of patient expressing how much they 'hated'' their jobs.
For the weekend that I stayed in hospital (early discharge due to the poor experience) I was forever in pain due to the long periods of time waiting for pain relief.
I found the Registered Nurses could not do enough for you, however they had other patients to attend to so could not provide a one on one service.
I would not recommend this hospital for first time mothers as I felt you were expected to know exactly what to do and were left to get on with it!
Suggestion: more staff made available for those mothers who need extra help and support!
However, on the plus side the Delivery Ward, Staff and Theatre Staff were amazing!
