I feel very grateful to have been part of the new continuity of midwifery carer model throughout my pregnancy. It was reassuring to see and be supported by the same midwives from my 12 week scan right through to postnatal care.
Sarah Q, Vicky, Rachel and Suzanne were all very good to me and it was nice to have familiar, friendly faces during the sometimes daunting and overwhelming stages of pregnancy and labour.
I am also very appreciative of the care provided by all of the medics during my emergency c section as well as the midwives and support staff working on the ward after.
After a slow start initially, my labour progressed quickly in the end and my partner had to leave his car at 3am in the morning at the barriers to help me walk in a lot of pain to the maternity doors. If I can suggest a drop off point at the doors would help with better access as at the moment, the walk is quite far for a woman who is in agony and in labour.
"Good to see a familiar face but better drop off access needed"
