About: The Whittington Hospital

I wish to thank all of the staff involved with us as a family when we discovered that our daughters baby had died.She was 5 months pregnant with her first baby. The shock and horror to hear that your baby has died is almost too much to bare and yet each member of staff were sympathetic,caring and gave so much of their time to all of our family. The necessary medical care was given with care and the professionalism first class. We had to spend nearly 3 days in the hospital and took over the room with music and many belongings. It wasn't great having to sleep in a chair but to be able to stay by daughters side throughout her ordeal was so comforting. Thank you to all the maternity team. My prayer now is that my daughter will eventually give birth to a healthy baby.
