What I liked

That the community nidwife and GP i have went above the heads of the incompitent midwives and regestrar at FGH and demanded we see a consultant urgently ..cos we hadnt our baby wouldn't have been here safely...and due to that ...baby was delivered by emergancy section

What could be improved

midwives and registrar

Anything else?

And i only thought FGH had Incompetent midwives ...We where lucky we had Our GP and District midwife that got in touch with a consultant cos if it was left to midwives and regestrar at FGH ...it could have been a very differant outcome for our baby .she was never going to be born naturally and should never have been gven a sweep.ending in emergancy section, she is here and healthy thank god.

Even after the consultant had said she needs to be delivered today and put it as an emergncey section a regisrar thought he had the right to ask cos she was having contractions and waters had gne if she wanted to try for normal delivery ...knowing what the consultant had already said she cant be left to labour and the baby was at risk.
