"Very Very Rude Midwife!!!"

About: King's Mill Hospital

Anything else?

This is a very laet review, as I had my daughter in 2011. However I made a complaint to the hospital and never heard anything back. And now I haev seen this I thought I would put my review. I had my daughter very young at the age of 16, and obviously like any other lady who is having their first baby you are anxious and worried of what is to come. When I was put on the delivery suite I didnt see a doctor for about 6 hours. Then eventually I had a really nice midwife come in to see me, she was a older lady and she sat on the bed and had a chat with me, which was lovely and she made me feel at ease. But then her shift finishes and I got a really really horrible midwife come to care for me, and unfortuanatly she was the one to deliver my little girl. When my partner and mum had left the room to get a drink, she would ask me a series of very hurtful questions about what people thougth to me being pregnant at such a young age. Giving birth is supposed to be a joyful special time. But instead I was made to feel intimidated. One thing is for sure If I have another child I wont be going back to Kings Mill, not at all. Very disgusted and It still plays on my mind 2 years on.
