    I have been in and out of the manor for the past 4 weeks!

    I would have a back up hospital planned as they have closed Labour and Delivery ward three times. In the last 10 days they have shut the ward 3 times!

    I have had good and bad experiences depends on how busy they are and which midwife you get.

    omg didnt know there was so many ladies local to me!! sorry that was random i havent had a baby at the manor but one of my friends has recently and she mentioned that she had a good experience but others havent previously. mind you thats the same anywhere. i had my first at new x and had a pretty good experience but someone else i know had one there a few months later and hated it. like one of the girls said it deoends on the midwife you get and how busy they are unfortunately.

    They have closed the ward due to the amount of people in labour! It is still the square building it is attached on the right hand side of the new hospital! Where you go to have your scans if that is on your left their is double doors in front of you labour is at the end of that corridor.

    I live right near the Police station! and am 32 weeks

    I was living in Walsall when I had my 2nd baby so had him at Manor Hospital and couldn't rate it highly enough. The midwife was amazing and it felt like a home birth, we were tempted to hang around there this time despite now living in Sheffield! I hope it goes well, hello to all the Walsall Mummies to be, I only lived there for about a year but I do miss the New Art Gallery.

    It has gotten very busy now sandwell has closed, i dont think they are coping that well (especially if they are having to close that often!)

    i went in at 13 weeks (was booked at manor and now booked at city) with quite a big bleed and had a mixed experience. i thought i was miscarrying because i was literally gushing with blood. i went to a and e in tears (by myself because my partner had gone to find somewhere to park the car) and explained what was happening and she asked how much i was bleeding. i said i wasnt sure because i came straight here but it was literally running down my legs (TMI lol) before i put a pad on. she told me to go to the toilet and check, so i did and told her i had soaked through the pad and it had gone through to my trousers. she then decided i wasnt bleeding enough (wtf how much mroe did they want??) and sent me to waldoc (which is like an out of hours emergency GP service really). anyway i walked round there by myself, my partner had no idea where i was. i got round there and had to explain it all again and asked for a sanitary pad to be told they had none, this is a hospital right??? it was literally soaking through my trousers at this point and she told me to go sit down and wait. i was literally sobbing my heart out, i was nearly hysterical i thought i was losing my baby. there were loads more people in the waiting room just staring at me crying and loads of kids running around. i waited about 5-10 mins and my mum burst in (had called her on the way) and came straight over to me, she sent my dad to find my OH and then went up to the desk to ask the woman wtf is she doing, 1.have some compassion and 2.find a effing sanitary pad. they then took me straight through to a little room (i was too scared to get up though because everytime i tried i could feel that i was about to leak blood everywhere) the doctor saw me pretty much straight away and said theres nothing he could do, im in the wrong place, but he would refer me to Early pregnancy unit straight away. a student took me up and kept trying to talk to me, but i really didnt want to talk at this point so my mum kept answering for me. she left me in a room in epu and they hadnt changed the sheets from the previous patient, so my mum did it. From then on they were pretty good. the nurses were really sympathetic and just generally lovely and they were so quick at sorting things out. they got the doc straight away and he did a scan straight away so we saw LO's little heart beat :) he did other checks too and everything was fine, so i got sent home again (extremely relieved!) and they did discharge papers straight away (which took ages last time i was in at sandwell!)

    i had heard bad things about the manor, so overall i was happy with my experience, but i think if i had cared about anything else at the start apart from thinking i was losing my baby, i would have been completely humiliated :(

    Heya all Im having my baby at the Manor hosp too.. I had a crap experience there with my first, I was induced and they messed up with the propess things they induce with and gave me 2 instead of one.. too cut a long story short, I had almost continuous contractions from the start, dilated much too fast and my dd went into distress towards the end as it was too much for her.. saying that tho as soon as they knew theyd messed up they put me in a room to myself and were lovely to me.. Iv just heard another horror story aswell that someone my friend knows is going back into the manor today for an op after a surgical instrument from a c section op 3 years ago was left in thr :S how true it is i dont know :/ I didnt realise thr were a few people on here from these ends x
