A mother who gave birth to her daughter in a hospital toilet said staff had ignored her desperate screams for help. Sharon Willoughby, 40, and her partner Richard Sum said they also rang the emergency alarm but waited in vain for 15minutes because staff thought 'she wanted a cup of tea'. Ms Willoughby had gone into the birthing unit at King's Mill Hospital in Nottinghamshire in November last year and was given drugs to induce the birth.But she claims she was not internally examined and went to the bathroom because of excruciating pain a few hours later that evening.

It looks like a nice modern hospital, shame the staff isn’t as good.
A cup of tea? I think they need a full tea party over there.
These are daily stories to anyone following the UK press.
Total cover-up by the Regime Media in the USA.
A few dozen truth seekers will follow this on Free Republic.
99.999% of the American sheep will be oblivious to ObamaCare.
I am going to get flamed for this, but I’ll say it anyway: DO NOT overuse your call light. If the health care providers thought she wanted a cup of tea, I’d bet a lot of money that she was asking for a lot of cups of tea, up until the point her labor got in her face.
It was the first baby for my cousin and his wife and the nurses didn't really believe them that it was time for the baby to come. His wife screamed at him and he ran to the end of the bed, caught the baby and yelled for the nurses.
Both dads joked that it would have been nice to receive a discount on the delivery fee ;-).
Thanks to ObamaCare, we'll soon see if this is the fault of the impersonality of national health care or of the mother. I pray you're right, although I am very skeptical.
Good luck trying to feed the money in if you are in a body cast or in the intensive care ward...
Maybe the widwives don’t speak English, so we shouldn’t rush to blame them.
The kid got a really crappy start in life.
“A cup of tea.”
Any other Moms laugh themselves sick at the thought of wanting a cup of tea while in labor?! Maybe I am the only one who told my husband to “stuff it” when he offered ice chips! Just a thought.
