I went in to have my daughter at musgrove park hospital on 30th april via c-section due to being overdue & unable to be induced due to previous complications with my first pregnancy.
I was welcomed onto labour ward by a very friendly member of the team who showed me & my partner to our room.
I then shortly after met the midwife who would be tending to us that day and she was lovely & friendly which put me at ease instantly.
Every single one of the team members I met throughout the time in hospital were phenomenal!
Informative, friendly, reassuring & pleasant!
My surgery went well and we welcomed our beautiful daughter into the world.
My partner got to stay for a few hours afterwards which was great and then he left as I was transferred onto fern ward.
Despite the crazy world we live in at present it was so easy to forget as I spent time bonding with my new baby.
The ward was quiet & calm and it was lovely!
The midwives really took the time to tend to your every need and make you feel comfortable!
No ask was too big which was great whilst being a little immobile.
My first child the labour was intense and left me feeling very anxious about this delivery to then be topped off by coronavirus I spent the last few weeks extremely anxious & nervous but from the moment I arrived I couldn't have asked for a better experience. All the staff are a credit to the hospital & I cant thank them enough for helping me bring my daughter into the world.
