"Maternity ward -fantastic"

About: Kettering General Hospital

I would like to say huge thank you to all staff in Ketterring maternity ward. I am first time mum and as much as i was prepare for labour and i was conscious about all possible scenarios labour itself did not go totally like i hoped. However i didn't need to worry about anything as staff were really supportive friendly and really knew their stuff . My heart melted when 3 am one of nurses knowing that i was in labour for two days, and i could not drink or eat all that time , brought me a toast and tea . I know labour can be a scary experience but i wasnt scare at all and thanks to support i got from all the amazing staff i want to go back there :) ( haha we plan second baby soon ) . Thank you
