"Antenatal clinic"

About: Tameside General Hospital

I recently moved into the area and expecting my first baby due in July, I had my first antenatal appointment today at the antenatal clinic. I had never been to tameside hospital before and easily found the building and car parking as it was well signed posted from the main entrance. I was greeted by friendly and helpful staff including a doctor and midwife who all introduced themselves and explained the procedures they needed to carry out and ensured my consent was obtained. They have put my mind at ease about the impending birth of my baby and have given me confidence in delivering my baby at Tameside hospital. Thank you to the lovely staff today in the antenatal clinic :)
