"Made to feel very relaxed"

About: Forth Valley Royal Hospital / Maternity unit

(as the patient),

I would like to thank my midwife Tony and student Caroline for the care I received on Ward 7 during my labour and birth of my 2nd child.

I had a very traumatic delivery with 1st child therefore I was nervous about labour with my 2nd. Tony and Caroline were very professional and understood why I was so anxious. They made my partner and myself feel very relaxed and well supported when I needed it.

My child is a week old and breastfeeding well thanks to your support and time. Thank you again.
