"New additional to the family!"

About: Queen's Hospital (Romford)

When recently experienced the birth of our new baby girl at Queens. Starting with the Ante-Natal classes. We attended several classes together and my wife attended a couple on her own. The lady who ran the some of the classes was top class. Very encouraging to both parents and she ran very interactive classes. They were brilliant. Cleaning fake poop from a doll was the highlight :-) Might seem silly, but my family is full of boys so learning about a girl was needed! The birth wasn't straight and we ended up having a c-section. The midwife's and other medical staff handled everything in a very professional manner and as the dad, when I asked questions, they provided the answers as needed. I'm very thankfully for the work they did. The post natal care was good. The staff really looked after my wife and again, I'm very thankfully for their work. Overall, I'm very happy with the care my wife received and obviously very pleased with the result :-) A wonderful baby girl.
