After having my second child at Ipswich, I was happy to have my third there. But this time round was a bit different. I went in to see the midwife for I believed I was in labour with contractions (40+ weeks pregnant at the time) but was told I was only 2 cm dilated and to go home. But I didn't want to go home. The midwife made me feel worse, I believe for making her miss her break and so me and my husband went home. 2 hours later I was back at hospital and within 15 mins of arriving (approx) I was pushing and gave birth. I was upset and annoyed that I had to go through that. I have met some of the nicest midwives at that hospital but now after everything if I had another baby I would avoid that hospital.
