Almost a QUARTER of mothers claim poor NHS maternity care left them or their baby in danger
Almost one in four mums claim poor NHS maternity care left them or their baby in danger.
The findings, from a Mumsnet survey, follow a string of maternity scandals in which dozens of mums and babies have died or suffered severe harm.
Twenty-three per cent of mums quizzed believed that they or their baby were put at risk.
Almost a third of the 1,018 respondents said they hadn't received all of the care they needed at birth.
Another 9 per cent felt their baby hadn't received adequate support.
Some mums reported suffering terrifying flashbacks since their ordeal, while others have been diagnosed with PTSD.
The damning poll, conducted forThe Times, echoes concerns raised by the Health Service Ombudsman in March which said that 'women aren't being listened to when they raise concerns about their pregnancies, babies, or their own health'.
The report warned even more mothers and babies will be harmed unless scandal-hit NHS maternity services are overhauled.
