Throughout my pregnancy I had a great deal of problems and was therefore consultant led. Let me just begin by saying the midwifery care I received was second to none and could not praise them anymore. However, when it came to seeing various different consultants and registrars I was disgusted by the lack of cooperation between staff, I was repeatedly told different things by each doctor. Wrongfully being told twice I would be induced due to high bp and previous pre-eclampsia. I was admitted at 38 weeks where I then had a disagreement with the consultant who told me to remain in hospital until there was an available induction date to be monitored, this was because in their words ' we're just too busy' (this happened to be a week later!) Which I believe put mine and my sons health at risk. May I just state though the care I received in labour and postnatally I could not fault. Especially Considering my son had an infection and was in special care after birth. So to the midwives and postnatal staff, I wish to say I big thank you.
