What I liked
What could be improved
I gave birth to my first son in may 2009 and all in all it was a horrible experience. firstly there were no beds in the delivery suite (which can maybe be expected) so i gave birth on the ward luckily they gave me my own room. my son was born at 5:00am and he wasnt cleaned up/bathed until about 9:00am the following morning even though i had asked them to. as a young mum i was scared and they offered me no support whatsoever after i have given birth, no advice or anything. this was discomforting as my son wouldnt take his bottle and didnt know what else to do. also i stayed in my dirty birth sheets and gown until i left at 11:00am the following morning. i was utterly disgraced with the quality of care i had been given. i would not use this hospital again, would reccomend any other just not this one.
