About: King's Mill Hospital

So annoyed that at an important time like being induced to give birth not all midwifes are on the same page. One of my birthing partners have travelled a long way I phoned before hand to explain and ask if they to could stay with me and was told should not be a problem, checked with midwife who booked me in said should be okay, night midwife said yes not a problem then you get that one busy body who expects my mum my birthing partner who doesn't drive, doesn't know the area to sit downstairs in the hospital lobby all through the night if nothing is to happen! Apparently it's to be fair to others who only have one birthing partner! What utter rubbish as I bet their birthing partners haven't been dropped off and live miles away. Thank you to that one spoilt busy body for spoiling what should be a nice experience. Why is it you get so many nice and accommodating staff then that one who has to be awful! Why if everyone else is fine with it just the one has to be different. How on earth do the other patients know who is in my room never heard anything so pathetic for an excuse to be a busy body! Now I won't sleep which is not good for myself or baby and I am sat here desperate to just go home or even to sit downstairs in the lobby all night with my mum which I'm sure they wouldn't care less about judging by the busy body not coming and telling me!
