Has everyone seen this on the news? It seems that they simply can't cope with demand. There have been examples of babies dying because of lack of care and emergency c sections. Of course this is my flipping local hospital! I have an appointment with a consultant on Thursday to discuss my delivery options as I suffer with lung problems. If there's any chance of having to have an emergency c section (because I can't breathe), surely I am best of having an elective booked before hand, given the hospitals record??? Argh!
