My labour started at 10: 15pm and went from 0-60 in seconds! My show came away at 10: 15 and by 10: 40 I was having contractions every 2 minutes that lasted 50 seconds. I phoned the Westburn ward who passed me to labour ward, the midwife on the phone was so helpful and before I knew it I was in the car on the way to the hospital.
Shelley my midwife met me at the door and took such good care of me. My son had pooped in the womb and also had his cord wrapped round his neck but I knew his was in good hands. I didn't feel stressed or worried in the slightest but to be honest the contractions were coming thick and fast it was hard to focus on anything.
She was a calming presence in the room and kept encouraging me telling me how well I was doing. My son was born at 12: 50am and was taken such good care of.
The midwives are rushed off their feet in every department that it's not surprising that they can't give their undivided attention to one person at a time.
