Queen’s Medical Centre midwives ‘overworked and understaffed’ before baby’s death

Midwives at Queen’s Medical Centre were overworked and understaffed before a before a baby died shortly after being born, an inquest has heard.

Wynter Sophia Andrews died at Queen’s Medical Centre on September 15 last year.

Her mother Sarah Andrews, a Nottingham City Council worker who now lives in Mansfield, says she felt “humiliated, worthless and forgotten” after arriving at the hospital.

Ms Andrews had started having contractions and experiencing pain six days before being admitted to the maternity ward on September 14.

Jo Taylor, a midwife at King’s Mill Hospital who had conducted a home visit, made the call to midwife Clare Lee at the hospital on Sarah’s behalf, the court heard.
