"Disgraceful antenatal care"

About: Warrington Hospital

I'm 19 and currently 39 weeks pregnant. At all appointments at this hospital I have been waiting for 3 hours+ to see the consultant. There is a lot of people walking around doing nothing. I feel I have been passed pillar to post with different midwives and different consultants. Recently been told I have severe PGP, so my consultant made me an appointment for a sweep with my midwife today. The midwife refused to do the sweep. So I'm now at home struggling to move at all with no help other than the advice of take a paracetamol. I am disgusted that there is no sort of care in place for myself and other ladies struggling with this PGP at such a late stage. I am really worried about the care I will receive in labour, as the care before labour itself has been unbelievably shocking.
