NHS Midwife story in Sheffield Parenting Group Posted December 16, 2009 I gave birth to my baby girl back in April this year. I arrived at Jessops at 1am and gave birth at 6pm that night. The first midwife I had was fantastic and never left my room. I had a fairly straightforward labour. My midwife then finished her shift and I got another one who again never left my room. Couldnt have asked for an more. I was never left alone in labour and actually had quite a laugh with her. Although when i got transferred onto the ward they didn't really want to know and like others have said there was no help at all with breastfeeding. It's not all bad.
