"Excellent Labour Ward Team & Maternity Care"

About: Leighton Hospital

A big thank you to the midwife team and the doctor who worked on the 1st May night shift. One month on, I still can't speak highly enough of the care and attention we received and the dedication shown during what must be a the long night shift for the staff when monitoring and making key decisions. All of this was very impressive and as expecting parents, was very reassuring to see. As our delivery wasn't straight forward, the team were very supportive and clear on the factors they were monitoring and the options they were considering whilst keeping us focussed on the next step. Eventually a C-section was required with the procedure being a success. Throughout the process the team encouraged my birthing partner's participation which was also appreciated. Post labour, the 2 days of care in the maternity ward was also excellent, with all the staff being supportive and helpful to my husband and I and our new addition. On a lighter note, TV shows can be quite misleading and simply don't give justice to what we've seen and I'm pleased to have the opportunity to promote our experience and the team. Whilst a team effort, I hope this feedback reaches named individuals. Thank you from all of us!
