"Treatment of disabled mother when my second child was born premature"

About: University College Hospital Elizabeth Garrett Anderson Wing / Maternity

(as the patient),

Due to my disabilities I found out no one was able to support me when my second daughter was born, also the midwife who were there able to assist me. Until I said I got a headache. Where they had to emergency c-section. However I have been paralysed in my back have vulnerability in walking. When I took this issue up the university college hospital had to take it seriously and are training they staff not to treat people with disabilities like this.
