"badly treated through labour and postnatally"

About: Yeovil District Hospital

I think the way me and my daughter got treated is unforgivable I have already complained but not satified with the outcome as I am apparently lying and reading a magazine while I was pushing her out is acceptable and not asking consent for painrelife and and to pop my waters and they did not even write down that my daughter had vitamin k as my gp had to write to the midwife to ask if my daughter had it. I am currently suffering with deppression due to this and havr been offered no support at all and nothing to help me get over the treatment I recieved. I also left hospital knowing nothing about bathing my daughter, water temp of the bath and I had no help with breatfeeding which left me getting mastitis twice and me not being able to latch my daughter on properly which lead to her losing weight and us getting sent to a feeding specialist when my daughter was 3 and a half months old and me going through unnessersary agony. I will not advise anyone on having their baby their and I will never go there in future I will always tell people other places on where to have there babies.
