"Birth experience"

About: Milton Keynes Hospital

Anything else?

I gave birth to my son 18/7/13 and had a fantastic experience on the labour ward. I had a long labour (36 hours from my waters breaking to birth) but was only in hospital for about 15 hours in labour. The care I received was fantastic! I had three midwives while I was there, all very nice and helpful and tried to do everything they could to make me comfortable. I had to have an IV to speed up labour as I wasn't progressing well so had to be on a monitor for about 9 hours. This meant I couldn't get up and so I had an epidural. The midwife had to stay with me all the time I was on the monitor and she was just wonderful, I couldn't have asked for better care. Anyone who is not sure about having their birth here should know MK maternity department has been refurbished and is now very well staffed. I would not hesitate to come here again!
