About: St Mary's Hospital (London)

Anything else?

I have been under the gynaecology department for a number of years, who were fantastic. I had many complications during pregnancy, the doctors and midwives in the antenatal clinic were always amazing, so friendly, helpful and calming. A wonderful midwife was so wonderful and always remembered us, which makes you feel like they care. It was decided i should be induced due to complications. after a very stressful and traumatic 24 hour labour i gave birth. We had a wonderful midwife, who took over my care at the start of their shift at 7am, the midwife and the rest of the team of doctors stayed with us until gone 10pm 3 hours after most of them should of gone home, to deliver our daughter. they would not leave until they knew we were going to be ok. Honestly without the fantastic team at St Marys, we truly believe that myself and my daughter would not be here. All the doctors and midwives communicated so well together. We had to stay on the ward for 4 days, and the staff on the wards, were wonderful, even though they are so overstretched. They let my partner stay with us (sleeping on chair) which was such a relief. my partner and I will be forever grateful to all of the staff St Marys hospital, words could never express how thankful we are to them!
