Birmingham Heartlands Hospital

Utterly disgusting my baby was born and taken from me, his hospital notes have been disposed of. Whilst away from me he stopped breathing and an mri scam showed he has had trauma to his head. Now has a brain injury. Do not trust the midwives at this hospital. I will NEVER return to this maternity unit.
No explanation, no apologies just being ignored by the governing midwife and obstetrician. Lies about his care , he ended up on nicu treating him for infection because they wasn’t told what had really happened to him. I lost the first 10 days with my baby boy. I was never offered skin to skin. My son has a future which includes cerebral palsy all due to the neglect and care of the midwife team on the maple ward at this dreadful place.
