"fourth baby, history repeating itself, ignored by..."

About: Macclesfield District General Hospital

even though I experienced problems with my eldest two children. I explained this to every midwife and doctors, although because I'm not a midwife or doctor, I can't possibly know that my waters have broken, just because you can't find it with a speculum ( as you couldn't with my other babies) which I told you repeatedly - you ignore me, say you'll send me for a scan ( after 5 hrs) which will tell you if I have normal fluid volume left ( it won't tell you how much fluid I've lost as you would need to repeat it) still you are continuing to put my unborn baby at risk!
