"Problems feeding my baby"

About: Montagu Hospital / Paediatrics

(as the patient),

I attended the baby clinic at Mexborough Health Centre in February this year. I find it ridiculous that the surgery displays breastfeeding signs when on two consecutive days I attended the baby clinic and asked for somewhere to feed my baby. After five minutes a room was found but two minutes after starting a feed I was asked to vacate the room by a nurse. The next day after my appointment I was advised to feed the baby to calm and comfort him after his immunisation injections but the room I was directed to was occupied. The nurse in that room refused to help me find an alternative room and I ended up in a cupboard. I suggest you wither designate an area for breastfeeding or remove the breastfeeding friendly sings.
