"Maternity Department"

About: Royal Bolton Hospital

I gave birth via emergency c section after a 3 day labour. I had anxiety before hand and needle phobic. Every single member of staff that I came across put me at ease, they were so understanding regarding my fears. I really couldn't have done it without the kindness of the midwives who were caring and supportive. I am no longer needle phobic and got over my anxiety thanks to the staff.
