"maternity"

About: Manor Hospital

not happy...had straight forward birth...had 2 kids aged under 5 at home with only hubby available to look after them and the hospital just would not help me discharge asap....this hospital should cater for families with young children who have no support....very unhappy that the hospital threatened me with social services when i requested i be discharged for a few hours to come back later.....sort it out you should be willing to help families who don't have that kind of support..Not threaten them! Now i have 3 kids under the age of 6 and going in soon with my 4th and i am dreading it, as my 3 kids are going to suffer....if i have a straightforward birth and want a quick discharge, then give it to me....otherwise make a compromise...Don't threaten me
