"No worries about Birth"

About: East Surrey Hospital / Maternity

(as the patient),

Fantastic experience in the Birthing Unit where our son was born. All staff introduced themselves and were caring throughout. Confident in our attending midwives throughout our delivery while I was anxious at times and things were moving fast. Attentive aftercare and very good clear communication. No worries about having another baby there in the future!

The timing of the 6 hours post birth check could be improved

Dear Frommetoyou

Thank you for your kind comments about your recent time in the maternity unit at East Surrey Hospital and in particular the birthing unit. Its good to read that you felt that staff were attentive and provide good communication when you were clearly anxious about the experience.

I will pass on your comments about the six hour post birth check.
