"teribble experenice in maternity triage"

About: Newham General Hospital

Anything else?

i went to maternity triage today as ive been having serve headaches on arrival the receptionist spoke to me like i was a child. i explained i see my midwife 2weeks and explained the headaches to her. My miwidwife told me if the get any worse to to triage which i did today. once she had filled her paper work in she took it to the midwife who then spoke to me like crap in the recepetion area saying it was because of the flu jab ive got these headaches. It absoultely broke my heart how people can treat us first times mums. i just wanted to be ressured myself and my unborn baby was ok. i will be looking into changing hosptials.
