"dirty wards... i was there for 6 days..."

About: Royal Preston Hospital

Anything else?

dirty wards... i was there for 6 days and my bedding wasnt evn changed once even tho its was covered in blood after giving birth!!! my ward area was never cleaned at all. no help fom midwives in the ward at all. with it being my first child, i had no idea hw to calm a screaming newborn or evn how to feed. nobody helped me at all. the only way to comfort the baby was to put it in my bed and wen i did this the midwife came screaming and shouting about how dangerous i was to the baby!!! i was there for 6 days as my baby was in neonatal, nobody told me why he was there or how long for. complete nightmare and evn the birthing exoperience was a nightmare as the midwives were discussing last nights eastenders programme whilst i was pushing the baby out and when i complained i was cold they shrugged it off saying its not cold at all....
