"Left in waiting room while waters were breaking at St Mary's"

About: St Mary's Hospital / Maternity care

(as the patient),

After my waters broke I was taken by ambulance to St Mary's, Whitworth Park. I was there May/June and stayed on SM4.

On arrival I was left in the waiting room for 35 minutes, I was embarrassed by the fact that my waters were still breaking and I was in a waiting room with 3 other couples.

However, I would like to thank Suzanne, a midwife on CDU (Clinical Decisions Unit) on 30/05/2007.
