"Wonderful experience"

About: St Michael's Hospital (Bristol)

I don't often do this but I feel that I should on this occasion. I had an elective c section in may this year, I was worried and nervous about the whole thing but the staff were amazing, caring and kind putting me at ease all the time making it a truly special moment when my daughter came into the world, they even sang happy birthday to her! I feel that all of the staff involved should be credited and I thank them from the bottom of my heart. During my pregnancy I had numerous appointments with my cons, he made me feel confident and always explained everything to me in detail and terms that I understood - lovely man. The only downside was the time that I spent on the ward where they were very understaffed and the midwives were rushed off there feet despite this they were kind and friendly and nothing was to much trouble for them my experience is one that I would repeat again I would love to know the names of the staff involved so that my thanks could be passed to them.
