About: Leighton Hospital Leighton Hospital Crewe CW1 4QJ
I recently attended hospital after having contractions at 32 weeks pregnant. I was in a lot of pain an had a water infection. The maternity ward sent me home when I was in agony along my back an my stomach saying I had constipation. The staff on the ward found it amusing I couldn't go to the toilet an were laughing about it. I was rolling around the floor in agony so went back in. At this point I lost the ability to empty my bladder. Told the midwifes I was dying an pain wasn't just contractions. Eventually they sent me for c section as blood was in my catheter an baby very distressed. Turned out I had a ruptured uterus an they had missed all the symptoms. Lost 3 an half pints of blood an nearly died. The first thing they said to my partner after the surgery was 'that woman in there is not to hav any more children'. After care was also not up to standard. Forgetting to give me anti biotics an failing to see me for 40 hours about expressing milk for my premature baby. Disgusting an left emotionally an physically scarred for life.
