I am 21 weeks pregnant fell getting onto the bus and ended up going to hospital to have an anti D injection due to my blood type staff were lovely on this occasion 26/5/14 Attended again on 29/5/14 as I thought my waters had broke still convinced they had broke! I arrived at hospital at approx 5:20 and did not get seen until after 9pm by the doctor but during this time I was told we were waiting for the doctor offered a drink of water but that was it! I had not felt the baby move from Sunday night and it was Thursday so needed some reassurance the only reassurance I had was that the midwife said the baby may have curled up and in a deep sleep! Not great reassurance with my first baby and everything that had previously happened. The doctor I had did not seem to understand how uncomfortable I was during the examination and even told me to relax with a bad attitude. I am seriously reconsidering where to give birth as the staff on this day did not feel welcoming nor understanding.
