"My daughter was taken through tremendous unnecessary trauma"

About: Paulton Memorial Hospital (Maternity)

(as a relative),

My daughter was taken into Royal United Hospital before the birth of her baby as she had high blood pressure. During her stay she was put through tremendous unnecessary trauma.

My daughter was induced 5 times, each time this resulted in excruciating pain to the point she was passing out. Eventually someone along the line decided she should have a Caesarian section – this should have happened a lot sooner.

Everything was wonderful after the birth, it is dreadful that she was put through the trauma by one or two staff, the five days over which she was induced five times were very difficult.

The consultant and team who carried out the Caesarian section were fantastic
