I had a planned c section at Good Hope. All involved prenatally were great including midwives, surgeons, doctors, anaesthetists. Recovery room again great care and once on the maternity ward midwives were kind. However these are the issues I faced, when asked for someone to change the urine in my cafita I was left twice for 1.5 to 2 hours before someone did this and had to ask twice. On the second day I was told by a support midwife to not get breakfast as someone would get this for me due to having a cafita. However at 8.8.15 I was concerned that I would be forget as I had been told the previous day that someone would get me lunch and no one came (a visitor got this for me) so I rang the bell and a support midwife entered and I asked if they could get me some breakfast, to which the midwife replied 'you can walk,' This made me feel patronised I explained that we were told someone would come to order breakfast and that I was still in pain and would find it difficult walking to the end of the corridor with a full cafita and a tray, the midwife told me I was "rude' and I am still in disbelief at the amount of compassion! Also I was left 7 hours without pain relief even though I was asked numerous times and my husband had to buy me some nurofen from a local pharmacy.
