What could be improved

My wife gave birth to Ealing Hospital on the 16th of August 2011.

After hours of wait, she did not have any contractions yet so the staff gave her a medecine in view to accelerate the progress. Later, still no contractions so they decided to increase her dose and then until maximum dose. Then the baby heartbeat was low so they decided to do a cesarean.

Finally the baby was born. Mum and baby girl stayed few days at the hospital and then went home.

My wife was very very tired and collapsed at home so we decided to go back to hospital to check if everything was Ok. Doctors said there that my wife was just tired and send us back home. In total we went 3 times at the hospital because she was complaining of tiredness. Each time we have been sent home as the Doctor explained it was just tiredness. My wife died at the hospital on the 4th of September 2011. May God bless her.

Please do not go at ealing hospital.
