Anything else?

I gave birth on the 7th July 2013 to my second child. Just wanted to let people know how lovely and fantastic the midwifes were. They were great and made feel calm, and looked after from the moment I arrived. We arrived at hospital around ten pm and I gave birth around one am. One was a student and never left my side. They work very long hours and I feel that they do not get enough credit for what they do. We are quick enough to moan but never seem to have the time to praise. I stayed in hospital for 5 days as I was on medication and the wards were packed. I cannot fort the staff at all. It was one of the hottest weeks of the year and with no aircon made it unbearable. The ward was understaffed and the poor staff had to work very hard. The food was very poor, I am lactose intolerant and was not able to eat breakfast or the food had to rely on people to bring me in food.
