"Labour "

About: Tameside General Hospital / Maternity care

(as the patient),

I had a very difficult and challenging labour. The midwives and staff on the labour ward were fantastic and looked after both me and my daughter.

Also the aftercare on ward 27 was especially good and they made sure I was well supported with breastfeeding and also in general.

Every member of staff had time for you especially with those teary moments! This made a huge difference to me and my family in how I recovered. I can't recommend them highly enough for making sure both myself and baby were safe and looked after.
