"mixed emotions on this hospital"

About: Leicester General Hospital

I'm currently in this hospital after giving birth to my baby yesterday morning. I've been in here since Boxing Day due to SROM. It took them 3days to actually get my induction started. And now my baby possibly has an infection which I feel is due to bein left so long after waters broke. Now the staff who dealt with my induction and my labour were absolutely perfect and I cannot fault them. But I feel that I was just left a little bit too long after waters going. I understand you have emergencies etc but when you are told so many different things as to when induction will be started etc it gets a bit frustrating, I feel that I should not have been left as long as I was.
