"I found some of the midwives rude"

About: Leicester General Hospital / Maternity

(as the patient),

I gave birth at the Leicester General Hospital.

Some of the midwives were so rude. I had a C-section and needed aftercare. The ones I met treated me like dirt, like I was a bother to them.

As a first time mum, I was overwhelmed by just having a baby and the midwives made me feel very small.

The doctors were great though. One senior midwife was the rudest and when I asked a question she treated me like I was am imbecile. I am reluctant to have another baby as a result of those bad memories.

I was a first time mum who had a c-section, I needed care and understanding. I think the training of midwives should stress the importance of caring as a vocation.
