About: Kettering General Hospital

After touring the hospital a few weeks ago I was hoping for a waterbirth, due to such a lovely suite at Kettering. Unfortunately I went into labour last week and experienced several complications which lead to an emergency c-section. The support, care and respect I was given by the delivery team and staff on the Rowan ward was exceptional!! They went the extra mile no matter how busy they were. Thank you to all staff that looked after me and my baby, you made my birthing experience very special.
