PostSubject: Midwives and the NHS   Thu May 03, 2007 3:24 am

I was watching GMTV this morning, and there was a debate about the general state of our Maternity wards. The Panorama programme which is on BBC1, done an undercover investigation which will be aired tonight at 8pm if you're interested.

I was wondering, the money being pumped into the NHS is at an all time high, yet we still have a problem with understaffing and lack resources which effect patient care. Which is leading to women around the country having dreadful experiences during child birth when it should be one of the most wonderful experiences ever! Ok, so you got pain, but you ladies know what I mean. ^_^

One woman who was in labour, was found in the corridor because there was no beds, and at another hospital, a vital baby heart monitor had to be shared between 25 expectant mothers!! Disgusting if you ask me! I believe that this poor care has led to babies disabilitys and deaths.

Whats your view? I think if I were expecting now, i'd probably opt for a home birth.
