"Don't have your baby here"

About: Gloucestershire Royal Hospital

The care here is very hit and miss. I experienced a lot of misses. Some of the Midwives in the triage and on the ward were very disorganised and clearly juggling too many patients to provide a decent standard of care to everyone. Likewise the consultants are the same. I also experienced rudeness and being called a liar by one midwife, which was both untrue and totally uncalled for. I won't go into all the issues I experienced but its fair to say I feel very let down by the standard of care I recieved and dreaded everytime I had to go back in there. My sister also experienced the same issues when having her baby at Gloucester Hospital too. If you can go elsewhere, please do. Having given birth in another hospital I can tell you the 2 experiences are worlds apart.
