After birth of baby, (midwives' help excellent) once upstairs in ward the staff seemed unresponsive towards me. I felt one nurse even blanked me when I looked at her which I thought was unbelievable.
I had a normal delivery but this second baby left me in a great deal of pain. I asked for a heat pad and found that even when I was asking for help from some staff, their attitude was uncaring.
My baby had to go to special care unit and I had to make trips downstairs all the time to see her because I had wait until a bed was available for me in the unit. I asked for a wheelchair and help to be taken down by staff and no one was available. I was in shock because my baby was ill and luckily my dad was there to wheel me down to the special care unit.
The staff at the baby care unit are fantastic but the maternity ward's staff I met seemed awful to me.
