"Excellent care & attention"

About: The Queen Elizabeth Hospital (King's Lynn)

I had my 1st baby in September & was really pleased with the way I was treated during my labour & after the birth. The midwifes were very patient and explained what was going to happen during my labour as i ended up needing an assisted delivery. They also respected my wishes about not wanting an epidural. After the birth everyone on the ward was very kind & helped me a lot with how to care for my baby & also with how to get her to breastfeed properly as i was struggling at first. This is a really friendly department with amazing staff & if I have another baby I would hope to have it at this hospital.
