"Our first baby"

About: Royal Preston Hospital

When we arrived at the sharpe green unit we were greeted, with dignity and respect. The clerical assistant was a credit to the whole unit. My partner came into be induced at 1030 on Friday. She began feeling a stir or two in her stomach in which the registrar help to no end with compassion and respect for partners well being. We were admitted to the delivery suite after spending time in the maternity ward hoping things would progress naturally, we went up and the pleasant and respectful registrar broke my partners water that's when things began to go on their way. The midwife whom was with us in daytime was a delight helping us both smile through the pain, who ever said laughter is the best medicine is right. My partner requested a particular night duty midwife to help us bring our little girl into this world all in all It was a bit of a traumatic time for mummy and baby. Every single member or the delivery suite team from anaesthiogist to the doctor whom used the forceps to bring our little girl. We thank you for everything you have done.
