"they're in the wrong job surely !!!!"

About: The Tunbridge Wells Hospital

The midwives were rude and extremely patronising . They seemed to forget labpur isnt text bk n a woman knows her own body and so will do what her body tells her if she feels its safe . I had to tell one midwife several times to "get out of me" when she was giving me an internal as I was in so much pain . I should not have had to gt to the point where I had to shout it . I felt I was extremely judged . Im not sure if it was because of my appearance, relationship status or because I was nt conforming but they were horrible . Once id given birth I was left in the delivery suite in my own blood etc fr 6 hrs .no one informed me there was a bathroom with a bath even though id asked where one was . When someone fonally came to gt me she argued with my mum n was rude enough to call her "datling" in a very condescending manner . This was my last baby and I feel the experience was ruined by the lack of professionalism and empathy .
