(as the patient),

What I liked

i was on the maternity unit for the birth of my third daughter. ui was fully supported through my labour and my midwife was excellent,she was quite serious and at first i tought she was a bit abrupt but she was amazing,my daughter had the cord wrapped around her neck twice and she delivered her safetly.i was fine and im so grateful for the after care team who were caring,helpful and efficient.my over all experince here was a positive one.

What could be improved

i had a good experience before during and after labour here so nothing to my mind. the nurses on the day for monthly pregnancy check ups unit were a bit miserable though.not very helpful or friendly.

Response from The Whittington Hospital

I am sorry we did not respond to this at the time. I am so glad that you had a positive experience for most of your time with us. I am sorry this was not the case during the pregnancy check ups however.
