Sunderland Royal Hospital
Review of Post Labour Ward , written by a patient
18th December 2019
The midwife who took care of my post delivery was very supportive. My only constructive feedback is that whilst in labour I had the same midwife, but after I had delivered my baby had difficulty feeding and I wanted support to breastfeed. Presumably due to staffing levels there was no consistency with the midwife that helped and some of the attitudes were very unhelpful. It transpired that my milk never came in, but I was made to feel like I should be trying harder to breastfeed, even though I wasn't producing any colostrum.
