"Maternity and labour care"

About: Whipps Cross University Hospital

Anything else?

I delivered my baby boy on the 28th August , I can not fault my antenatal care I had a high risk pregnancy and felt very confident with the amount of appointments and scans I was given , I had a very quick labour and the care I was given on labour ward was fantastic by all staff involved with my care , I was seen quick taken to labour ward straight away , my midwife I had made my birthing experience one to treasure and I feel lucky to of had her deliver our boy , she was not only kind and patient but she put me at ease , she even plated my hair for me to get it out my way , she was not pushy made me lots of tea after and made my husband feel part of the whole experience we will never forget her ! The only fault was the lack of staff of the post natal ward to help after the birth , but in all honestly it wasn't the end of the world
