"Outstanding Maternity Care"

About: Pinderfields General Hospital

I gave birth at Pinderfields and, although it was a long and difficult labour resulting in a four day stay from start to finish, my whole experience is highly positive. The midwives are outstanding - knowledable, professional, encouraging, friendly and helpful. I had every option and action explained to me and I was treated with warmth, dignity and respect at all stages, including afterwards on the recovery ward. Every member of staff who treated me went above and beyond for me and my family, easing us through a potentially very difficult time emotional and physical support at all times. I really want to mention the midwives who mainly treated me. They are amazing and worked tirelessly, I absolutely can't thank them enough for what they did for me and my family. The wards are spotlessly clean and are constantly being cleaned and tidied by staff. Everyone, from the ladies who brought cups of tea to senior midwives were warm, friendly and went above and beyond. I would have no doubts in returning for future maternity or recommending Pinderfields to others wanting such a high standard of personalised and professional advice.
