My daughter is currently in the antenatal ward, she was told she was going to be induced,(an I use this word vey lightly) yesterday. she is on c;lexaine because of her blood. She went in at 09:00 on 04.08.14, she was given as tablet, not to induce but just to soften the cervix, so that they could break the waters- she was given the first one at 11:30 yesterday morning, At 4.45 pm she was put on a monitor to see how the baby's heart rate was, the baby do9es not like thing on her belly and moves whenever this happens which results in the heart rate not being recorded properly. The midwife decided that despite being told by all of there present that the heart rate had not dropped, but baby moved decided that she was call a DR... there was no DR prepared to come and see my daughter, no obstetrician in the whole hospital either. It took almost three hours and countless phones to get a DR who was not an obstetrician to come and very very huffily look at the monitor, only to tell the midwife who was lovely but whose understanding of English was not good that there was nothing wrong. At 8.30 PM she was taken off and was told that she would not need another tablet and would be taken to the labour ward. The time is now 16:08 on 05.08.14 and she is still on the labour ward, she has had next to no sleep, nor has her husband - she came off of nights yesterday morning and has had the total of 5 hours sleep 2 of those include being on a ward with a bright light being on because the switch is broke and cannot be turned off. She has not had any clexaine since Sunday 03.08.14 this is not good for my daughter or her unborn child.
