I didn't have a great experience at this unit in 2011 giving birth to my son. However, I have nothing but the highest praise for everyone I came into contact with during my pregnancy & labour with my daughter in 2013.
People who stand out for me are Attica, Donna, Alison & Marie (a Hypnobirthing midwife), Heather looked after us exceptionally well on the postnatal ward. Lauren also received care in SCBU & the dedication of the nurses there is wonderful.
The provision of Hypnobirthing for mums who have had a previous poor experience or who are afraid pre-birth is a wonderful, wonderful idea & the director of the hospital should be proud of his/her proactive & forward-thinking manner. This should be protected & fought for tooth & nail. I was lucky enough to be referred to this course & found it absolutely invaluable. I was seriously considering an elective caesarean section after an Emergency one with my previous birth. The enthusiasm & dedication of your award-winning midwives enabled me to achieve a VBAC.
Praise where praise is due! A huge improvement on my experience the first time around. Post-natal care could still bear a little more improvement but was unrecognisable from the "care" I received in Jan 2011.
The Infant-feeding team also warrant a mention for their help & reassurance.
