"Labour & Maternity"

About: William Harvey Hospital

I've just come home after a 5 night stay following the birth if my daughter. Complications in labour meant we had this unexpected stay. I was very well looked after through everything, the midwife who was with me during birth was amazing. The midwives on the ward were so busy, but if was never made to feel like they were rushing through things and felt at all times like my daughter & I were being well looked after.
