"Anderson Delivery suite - Lewisham Hospital"

About: University Hospital Lewisham / Maternity care

(as a relative),

My wife gave birth to our second son in the Anderson Delivery suite at Lewisham Hospital. The level of care at every stage of my wife's pregnancy was excellent and could not be faulted.

A special mention should go to our midwife for the delivery, Ruth. She provided an amazing level of support and information from the minute we arrived in the delivery room. She also ensured that we left her care having asked all the questions we needed to and checked up on my wife later in the day after she had delivered our baby, even though we had formally left her care.

After our son was born wife continued to receive the same high standard of care and we could not have been happier.
