"Giving birth to my third child"

About: Lorn & Islands Hospital / Maternity care

(as the patient),

When I found out I was pregnant with my third child I was so delighted to have my midwife that I had had with my second. My care was second to non and with covid and the uncertainty of going to Paisley where I had my previous births I was unsure what to do, but with all my options and support from my midwife I decided to go ahead and have my third at my local hospital.

I can not describe to you how lovely my experience was, I felt so relaxed and comfortable(In between my contractions). My midwife, and the team of midwives I had that day never left my side, they kept me calm when I panicked and kept me reassured through everything. My aftercare on the day was outstanding and my postnatal care has been top. 

I can not describe how thankful I am to have had such an amazing team and service. 

And without a doubt if I was to have another child, I would go no where else to have my baby. 

Thankyou ladies for everything you have done for me and my baby, can not thank yous enough.
