"I gave birth to my son in the ..."

About: The Royal Victoria Infirmary

(as the patient),

What I liked

I gave birth to my son in the RVI. The midwifes and the doctors were very professional, polite and helpful. I was given the necessary information to make choices. In times of emergency the whole team acted calmly and speedily. Both my son and I were given the best available care which allowed us to make a full recovery. We were always treated humanely.

What could be improved

There is an obvious shortage of midwives, but it never affected our care.

Anything else?

Thank you very much.
