Details of experience

Water broke no labour.
So put on drip. Posterior baby and drip hurts a lot ( now birthed 4 babies and this was the worst). No support on position changes to help decent. Not able to really be active due to drip.
Got epidural. Didn’t work one side, got redone. Heart rate declined got skull cap monitoring.
Couldn’t feel to push. Vacuum then forceps.
Obstetrician did what his job was.
Mid wife was nice but no support or assistance nothing like having a
Private midwife.
