"The friendliness, professionalism ..."

About: Royal Cornwall Hospital (Treliske)

(as a relative),

What I liked

The friendliness, professionalism and care displayed by the staff in the delivery suite when they assisted my wife when giving birth to our son. My wife started to give birth toward the end of one of the midwifes shift and although someone else arrived to take over she still remained with us in her own time assisting with the birth until our son was born. The second midwife disappeared soon after ous sons birth and I later learned she had gone to lie down as she was unwell and had been feeling unwell all of her shift. This realy impressed me because she stayed with us until our son had been safely delivered.

My wife was in labour a long time and the delivery was not straight forward, if the first midwife had finished at the end of her shift and the next midwife that was unwell had not helped, things may well have turned out different.


Thanks also for the hospitality and the other nurse/midwife that provided me with a sandwhich.
