"An unhappy stay on the maternity ward"

Staff didn't work well together and gave conflicting and contradictory advice regarding feeding my newborn. Some of the staff (not midwives) were disrespectful and discourteous towards my wife. She was so upset she insisted I take her home although staff wanted her to stay another night. It would have been nice had the staff given my wife encouragement and praise not made her feel like an awful useless terrible mother. It would have given her confidence instead she was demoralised and felt like a terrible let down, not what any woman needs after giving birth. I hope staff don't treat anyone else's wife in this appauling manner.
