    Yea ??

    I'm living in Gants Hill.. Is Chadwell Heath a nicer place ? Were looking to move in Jan before the baby is born , but need somewhere close to where we are now because of where my OH works.

    How are you finding pregnancy ?

    No your just down the road lol :)

    I don't want to give it a terrible review but this is my honest opinion lol.

    Well, they have all the facilities you could ever need and it is all modern and up to date in there, and for scans they are good but £4 a photo lol. Oh and you may have to wait a while!

    But when I had LO they were short staffed and I had an agency midwife that had never been there before and didn't know a thing, including standard english! And they wouldn't let me get in the birthing pool as they didn't have the staff :( TBH i couldn't fault the doctors and the registrars but I didn't have a good experience with the midwifes, generally. But on the other hand my SIL had her boy there and couldn't fault it. I'm sure I was poorly treated as I was only 19/20 when pregnant! (turned 21 monday haha :D )

    I hope you have a good experience there! :flower:

    Oh dear, sorry you didn't have a great experience and I really hope it wasn't because of your age, it's hardly that it's unusually young or anything and I'm sure they have people of all ages having babies there that they have to deal with. It can't have been nice having someone who doesn't even speak proper English either and as sure I am that the foreign workers do a good job in a situation like that I imagine you need someone who can understand you properly through gritted teeth!!!

    I had my scan there yesterday and whilst the waiting room was busy, we only waited 10 mins beyond our allotted time which was good as I was bursting for the loo!! I did like that the hospital felt nice and new and didn't have that horrible hospital feel (or smell) to it!

    Glad you liked it there! Hopefully my experience was purely because of short staff! And thanks! I got some lovely stuff for my 21st but I was soooooo ill I couldn't enjoy my day properly! :(
