"Amazing midwife"

About: Colchester General Hospital

After a long day with contractions I was rushed to Juno suite by my fiancé & a lovely community midwife who was starting her shift at 7am..she heard me screaming in the car park! I was met in delivery room by a midwife who was amazing! I was 10cm & ready to push & had a lovely delivery & it was all thanks to the midwife! She was so calming & caring. I don't think I could have done it if it wasn't for this midwifes positive attitude & great sense of humour it definitely got me through it! Our daughter was born at 8:47am Monday 2nd June & delivery was amazing. I was cared for so well. I will definitely be giving birth at Colchester maternity unit in the future again. Thanks again !
