My.sister gave birth last November. After getting to.pilgrim and it being really obvious she is in extreme pain and obviously in labour she was sent from the labour ward to the maternity ward given cocodamol despite being in sheer agony. For 5 hours she wasn't checked and when my self and her husband had had enough and asked the midwife to check her she was found to be 8 cm. She was told she couldn't have her birthing cd on as it was rock music and spent her pushing time with 7 trainees gawping at her when she didn't give permission. She was given pethedin even though she stated she did not want it.
Finally after her son was born for 4 hours! She was left in a dirty bed with blood and every thing else still covering her. She asked for a shower or a wash but no.body came to clean her up. I eventually went to the midwife station and asked for bowls and towels I'll do it myself.
I will not be having a child at pilgrim
