"Labour and Maternity Ward"

About: University Hospital Lewisham

I gave birth to my first child in Lewisham Hospital last year February.I could not have a better experience! The midwife and the student were calm and friendly at all times. I was always well looked after and they never left me unattended. I was in the Maternity ward for nearly 3 days after an emergency c-section and the nurses there were amazing. I have to say that they did not have enough staff on at night but the people who worked were genuinely very helpful and patient. Thank you to everyone who made this experience a good one.

All feedback is extremely important to us and I will pass this onto the ward manager so that she can share this with her staff.
