"Maternity Unit"

About: Gloucestershire Royal Hospital

I am the mother of my daughter who very recently gave birth in very sad circumstances. During the whole time, she and her husband and the wider family were treated with the utmost respect, care and consideration. The outcome was never the outcome that we expected and the midwives were equally as "gutted and heartbroken" as we were. I thank them for their complete professionalism, dedicated care and compassion to us all but even more so for my daughter and son in law at this sad time.
