"Not a good hospital"
About: Darent Valley Hospital / Maternity Darent Valley Hospital Maternity DA2 8DA
I gave birth at this hospitaland I sincerely regret it. I was treated very badly by the staff when I went into labor. On a number of occasions I found myself on the toilet floor trying to push as the staff were just not helpful. I arrived there 5 cm dilated and they kept saying they had no pain relief available. The nurses kept saying the doctors are in surgery and so I has to wait until they were done. After 3 hours when I was in severe pain I went to the toilet I tried pushing that's when the nurse said the doctors were available but by that time I was 10cm. It was a traumatic experience and one that you should not be.
