Every time I have been to the antenatal clinic it is filthy and have always been seen late. I appreciate the healthcare professionals have to manage emergencies first, all I request is you let your patients know rather than just keep them waiting.
This is my first baby and if it wasn't for the internet I would have no idea what to expect. The midwives don't tell you anything and just want you in and out and and give you no information and or support with writing a birth plan, what and how this will be used, what the signs of labour are, when th call the maternity unit. They don't let you know you have a choice regarding labour, home birth, birth pool etc.
The midwife I saw today told me I had to dispose of my urine sample myself and to reuse this again up to 3 times as they are running out!
I really hope that when the time comes for delivery the staff are much more responsive!
