Is it always a consultant? or could it be someone more junior?

I am having a ELEC in 2 weeks on NHS.

I am seeing the head consultant on thursday, who will be performing it.

The staff on the post natal ward were very helpful with bringing my DD to me for feeds before I was mobile and helped me with breastfeeding.

That's a big improvement on my experience. I had my baby with me all the time and was reprimanded for calling a midwife to pass me my baby for BFing when it was too painful to move after my 2nd CS. "You should be doing more for yourself by now".
