"Maternity, labour and aftercare, before, during..."

About: Rotherham Hospital

I chose to use Rotherham hospital after finding out I was expecting in may of 2013.. From start to finish, the staff involved with my pregnancy were helpful, informative and very open to my requests. I was diagnosed with gestational diabetes and had to attend further appointments and scans. I was fully informed at each stage and had to be induced due to gestational diabetes on the 31st Decemebr 2013. This was at my request, and although there would have been less staff available on this date, it was accepted and I had my baby on the same evening. I feel I had to leave a review to thank and recognise the wonderful people who work at this hospital! How can I ever thank the people involved enough for helping me bring my child into the world! It wasn't a straightforward birth, although it was quick. All staff involved were calm, professional and down to earth and lovely to have around when my child was born. People are often all to eager to leave negative feedback, yet rarely leave positive. Thank you so much to all the staff again. I would recommend this hospital to anyone and if I decide to have more children, will be having them at this hospital for sure!
