"St Peters..Outstanding Service Throughout..."

About: St Peter's Hospital (Chertsey)

I've suffered with a life long phobia of blood tests & pain and have put off trying for a baby until last year (I'm 40). With the amazing 9-month long support from the St Peter's Maternity Abbey Wing team (Screening Midwife, Anesthetists, Birth Reflection Consultant, Obstetricians & Surgeons), I managed to conquer my fears day by day, resulting in my son being born in April 2014. Absolutely every member of staff whom I came into contact with took the time to listen & understand my phobias. They explained each next step clearly & let me decide when I was ready to progress with my next stage of care. I can not praise the St Peter's maternity team highly enough - they have changed my life!
