"Giving birth - not a great experience"

About: University Hospital Of North Durham / Maternity care

(as the patient),

While in labour I saw about 3 different midwives, I had students when my birth plan specifically asked for none, I feel like I was left on my own too soon after birth, I don't think that my stitches were done correctly, I was given 5 minutes to change rooms, I feel like they didn't respect my wishes and this led to me getting very upset and wanting to go home, they were very disorganised on my final day which frustrated us.
