"Fantastic experience for a first time mum!"

About: St Peter's Hospital (Chertsey)

My husband and I wanted to say a huge thank you to the whole staff team at St Peters maternity department for the help, support and care given before, during and after the birth of our son. We have not had many dealings with St Peters previously as we had just moved into the area and we were a little bit apprehensive but we are so pleased to be able to say wholeheartedly that those fears were completely unnecessary. Although it was obvious that the department was extremely busy we always felt that the staff had the time to listen to all of our questions and concerns no matter how trivial or how often they must have heard the same questions from nervous first-time parents. As a first time mum who was being induced early due to slight complications and who knew nothing about childbirth everything was explained clearly and fully to me, my wishes and concerns were always listened too and I was treated with the utmost dignity and respect. Nothing was too much trouble and what could have been a very stressful experience was made 100 times easier due to the compassion and care from the whole team. We would like to give a special thank you to the midwife who delivered our little boy, for her help and lightning quick reactions when our little one had a bit of trouble after delivery. Also a huge thank you to all the midwives who came to his speedy rescue. We are in awe if the amazing work you all do and we will never forget the top quality care both my son and I received. We are extremely grateful to everyone.
