    I was shocked at how no interviews took place with midwives or even the RCM. Very one sided I think and I wasn't impressed. Hopefully people watching won't think its the same everywhere and this was a rare case

    Very one sided and biased views imo. I e mailed the producer of the programme to let him know this too >:0
    Have to add that the consultant midwife made me angry too...she came into the profession to be a 'servant' to women? Very bad choice of words, and came across as patronising... 'advocate, supporter, to facilitate women's choices' would have been so much better.

    I've just caught up with this. All I can say is that I'm speechless. No wonder people have negative views of midwifery care :(
