"very caring midwives"

About: Leicester Royal Infirmary

I decided to have my second child at LRI after recommendations from others and a frightful experience at LGH with my first. I ended up not getting there on time and giving birth in the reception but the midwives were lovely and came running down as soon as they could. From there till I left I was checked on every few hours and asked if I needed anything. I was in a lot of pain after birth but was weary of telling them thinking they might think im making a big deal but they were understanding and looked after me well. I was there for less than a day but was very satisfied.
