"Had my baby here by emergency ..."

About: Norfolk & Norwich University Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked

Had my baby here by emergency C Section after 10 hrs of a difficult labour and baby going into distress. Cannot fault delivery suite-Midwives and Doctors were brilliant in a difficult situation. Blakeney Ward staff were fantastic-supportive, helpful nothing was too much trouble.

What could be improved

Food was alright but the Sandwich bags were rough-bread was stale, so I ended up having to send my partner down to cafe for me. Also, night before I had baby I got sent home from Cley because they were busy, despite me saying I was in pain and wanted to stay. An hour after getting home, my waters broke and I had to travel 25 miles back to hospital and it was agony. Would have been nice for them to take notice of me.

Anything else?

Being in Hospital was a better experience then I thought and I wouldn't hesitate to have my next one here. Thank you very much for exceptional care.
