"Fantastic staff on the consultant led unti and..."

About: Lister Hospital

I recently gave birth to my second child on 2nd January 2014. I was very nervous as I had a horrible delivery and experience in 2011 in Welwyn with my first son. I am so pleased that I got to have my baby at lister as it is such a lovely hospital with such fantastic staff. They were all very caring and explained everything clearly. I had a lady with me through most of my delivery and she made me feel at ease. I ended up having an epidural and was unable to walk properly for a few hours after giving birth. I was worried that I would not be able to look after my baby properly...I really didn't need to worry as the nurses on the ward were very helpful and caring (unlike the nurses I had experienced in Welwyn hospital). If I decide to have any more children in the future I know I will be going back to lister hospital! I will definitely be recommending lister hospital to friends and family.
