"Excellent maternity staff."

About: North Manchester General Hospital

Anything else?

My sister gave birth to a baby girl in the Labour Ward after being in labour for 3 days. When we arrived at the hospital, the staff had a room all ready for her. There were a few rude midwives that had very bad attitudes and were not sensitive or considerate in any way. However, one midwife and student midwife were absolutely amazing. They never left our side throughout the whole experience and made us as comfortable as they possibly could. They made us feel at ease and gave us the best care we have ever experienced in North Manchester General Hospital. These two are a credit to the Labour Ward and the student midwife will make a brilliant midwife in the future. If I ever have a child of my own, I'll be requesting one of these two. We can't thank them enough.
