I gave birth at St. Peter's in August 2014 and I am looking online at the reviews as I am pregnant again and need to make a decision regarding the location of my birth.
I can see that the reviews are either exceptional or awful which leads me to believe things have not improved to a consistent level.
I expressed an desire to breastfed my daughter however I struggled with technique and as I had a private room, I was left to get on with it.
After advising senior staff of this, I was sent a person in a green uniform who told me that they were aware of my complaint and they couldn't believe that I was unable to get the technique as it was simple.
They proceeded to push ,y child towards my breast to latch on whilst saying "there you go, easy".
They then told me that as they were about to get their next accreditation for breastfeeding, no one was leaving the hospital without giving it a good go.
I felt I was treated like a statistic not a person.
