"fantastic staff helped our family"

About: Cheltenham General Hospital

I've had both my daughters at grh both prematurely and I cannot praise the midwives enough both in the hospital and in the community. My first born arrived 71/2 weeks early I was treated like I was the most important person in the world by the staff involved I couldn't have felt more safe and completely involved in my daughters care despite her being whisked away immediately to hdu. Thankfully she was fine and the staff even took a photo of her for me as I had to go to theatre following her birth. My second was born three weeks early on the 13-08-2014 also in the very early hours I might add but this didn't affect the treatment we received. Both times I was given a private room and given the help and guidance both my husband and I needed at such a personal time.
