"Short spell in neonatal"

About: Royal Hampshire County Hospital

Anything else?

I gave birth to my second child at Winchester early in September. It was a quick labour which unfortunately ended in emergency c-section. He was exactly 4 weeks premature, so right on the cut-off for transferring us straight to post-natal GH ward rather than neonates. The labour team were fab, brilliant midwives, the ward was very busy but the team coped well. Although in hindsight I think we were sent home far too early for a slightly prem baby, and unfortunately had to be rushed back to hospital the day after I was discharged, I then thankfully went straight to neonatal where I cannot praise the team enough. They were so kind, patient, caring & supportive; and worked hard to give you as much ownership over tasks and decisions for your little one as possible. What a truly remarkable team that work down there.
