My daughter has a five and a half week old baby who attended x-ray department to have an ultrasound scan carried out on her hips as she was born breach. My daughter fed her baby in the car prior to appointment to settle her but during the procedure baby started crying. A member of staff asked her to give her baby a dummy tit but baby has never had one. My daughter had to try and feed her baby again and was shown into a public toilet. A few minutes later staff knocked on the toilet door to ask her to come and get the ultrasound done before she had adequate time to feed baby.
My daughter was upset as her baby still didnt settle and she was told she should have fed her baby before appointment which she had done. My daughter was also informed by the member of staff she thought that all future appointment letters to mothers of babies should inform them they must feed before such appointments. No empathy was shown at any time towards her or her baby, she felt totally unsupported and she left the x-ray department in tears.
