"Maternity department"

About: Leicester General Hospital

I was on the delivery ward for 3 days in September having been booked in to be induced. During that time I could not have been treated any better than I was. Every single member of staff that I came in contact with, although extremely busy was fantastic. From the midwifes to the lady that brought my dinner. I was sent for an emergency ceasaren on sunday 7th September and the staff in the operating theatre were patient and reassuring as I began to panic. In particular the aneathasist. He spent time calming me and reassuring me and I felt comforted by the way he spoke to me and talked me through the whole procedure. For that I am very grateful. When on the ward after delivery I believe that the staff went beyond the call of duty. Nothing seemed to be too much trouble and I was so grateful for the care I recieved. Having a baby can be a scary time and I am truly grateful for the care, support and patience I was treated with before during and after the birth of my son. Thank you x
