"Not satisfied the way I was treated"

About: Milton Keynes Hospital / Maternity care

I delivered my baby in January 2016. The midwife who attended me did not help in any way to deliver the baby. I delivered the baby at 10:24 pm and was taken to theatre at 1:00 am for stitches as I had 3rd degree tear. I was left on my own in pain for about 2.5 hours after delivery. The attendant/midwife missed my medication next day. Midwives were very callous and rude in doing their duty. This was my first time and I believe the midwives should be more polite in dealing the first time mothers. I understand that it's their daily job and they see many deliveries a day but for a first time mother, its actually first time delivery, so they should be treated in more polite way.
