"absolutely brilliant in my eyes..."

About: William Harvey Hospital

Anything else?

I went into hospital to give birth to my little boy, it was extremely horrible outside due to severe snow. The ladies in the labour ward were so helpful even with the reduced numbers of staff that were there that day. In the end I had 9 different midwives but all of them were so kind, helpful and reassuring. One midwife was an o call midwife and she came all the way from Canterbury, she was with us from 11 o'clock that night to 3:30am when another midwife took over. She was so nice but she missed out by 5 minutes me actually giving birth. She was so nice and would love to thank her. We were let out 6 hours after giving birth and had lots of staff helping myself and mum to the entrance to go home. All the staff are so friendly in William Harvey Hospital and will definitely be using them again when I am giving birth to my second.
