Mother of one (born in 2010s), from South-East England

Childbirth didn't go as written in my birth plan as I had high blood pressure and had to be monitored constantly. Was longer than I expected (48 hours) from start to finish but I didn't think it was painful just tiring. Only used my TENs machine and entinox as pain relief. Only thing I didn't
like was midwife tell me I wasn't in labour after 24 hours only to be examined and being 5cm dilated
