"Not the right way to bring a child into this world"

About: Leicester General Hospital / Maternity

(as the patient),

In one word.... Awful. Awful treatment from some staff, awful caring towards my partner who was in serious pain at the time and I felt some of the staff had an I don't really care attitude. . After my experience I could only describe this place as second worst place to bring a new life into. In my opinion the first would be hell.

To top it off outside there was someone trying to get us to sell them "puff" by this I think they meant cannabis.
