I visited this hospital today at 9.40am with my husband & 20 month old on, for my scheduled 20 week scan. The female sonographer was very unwelcoming, I could tell she was in a mood & wanting to vent it on someone. Well I would of preferred that someone not be me, a vulnerable pregnant women. I came to the appointment in high spirits & left feeling a bit upset. First of all what happened was she asked for my maternity notes which I had to retrieve from the bottom of my pram, whilst doing this she moved the table for lying on closer to me & it bashed my leg ( I bruise easily)...I brushed that off as an accident, then she couldn't find a paper in my notes & was a bit annoyed by it ( it was all in the tone of voice) Then as I was lying on the table ready for the scan she said in a rude manner can you come closer. She also seemed rushed & seemed not to like her job. I believe that every pregnant woman should be treat with care & kindness & on this occasion it was supposed to be a wonderful time for me & my family to see our babies progression. I am worried now if I would want to give birth here, I would like to visit the labour ward to view the accommodation & ask questions about the care I will receive.
