Mother of one (born 1980s), South-East England

Seeing my daughter for the first time was wonderful words can't describe the beauty of seeing her holding her.
But the whole experience with the nurses at the hospital was horrible.
the father was there but when he went out the room and I was in childbirth and great pain one of the nurses said, you're not together are you??
we were not he was useless
After I first held her they took her away I kept ringing the bell to get her back they said rest.
I wanted to breast feed her to get a bond.
I had to walk out the room to find one of the nurses feeding her with a bottle??
I managed to get my daughter in my arms, there is so much more to tell but the experience was horrible.
