"My amazing birth experience"

About: Tameside General Hospital / Maternity care

(as the patient),

I gave birth in june 2013 at tameside maternity. I was treated amazingly and even when things went wrong the team pulled together to help me and my baby.

I was kept in for as long as they felt was needed and until they were happy with me the midwives and student were all amazing.

I felt so comfortable being there and leaving my baby with the midwives. I couldn't of asked for anything more.

I still reflect on this event as a very special and amazing day and the staff made it so much better.
