This is my first post on the local site, so hello ladies of Macc.
I wanted to get your views/experiences of Macc Hospital. I'm hoping to get an elective CS there in April. The local midwife said she was quite optimistic i would be able to get one, and the new NICE guidelines won't harm the chances.
If you have any comments on the 'service' you have had there, good or bad, I would like to hear it. Forewarned is forearmed!
My experiences of Macc were dire - given drugs too late in labour so missed dd's birth. At the age of 7 she was sent home from a+e with tubigrip on a broken ankle. Had 2 bodged attempts at amnio, then was referred to St Mary's and had irritable uterus afterwards.
Oh yes, and when I asked about aromatherapy in labour I was told that in no circumstances must I use lavendar oil!
