"Pregnancy/Maternity - Maple Ward"

About: Heartlands Hospital / Maternity

(as a carer),

This is an amazing hospital, and many of the staff work superbly hard to provide excellent care in the most difficult situations.

My wife visited the hospital for our second child, we were very well looked after.

After the baby arrived, our child was looked after at night until my wife was better. My wife was looked after by midwife Dawn Bishop. I cannot stress how amazing this midwife is. Whatever she gets paid is not enough, consistently superb over a period of 6 days plus, with all the chaos and stress.

A huge thanks to all the other staff too, a great support. Special thanks to Marie James, Aimie Fish and Dr Vishwanath Kimoji.

One of the let downs was a member of staff who, in one of our earlier visits, impatiently did not want to wait outside during my wife's assessment. After we requested he wait until she was appropriately dressed, he barged in again and said he did not have time to wait. Unbelievably this was a doctor,

All the other doctors we came across were fantastic.
