"The effort staff had made to make ..."

About: Watford General Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked

The effort staff had made to make the centre feel more relaxing. Staff were also very accommodating and even found a duvet for me to snuggle under. The birth pool was also great.

What could be improved

The beds were the old style so sitting up after the birth to breast-feed was not so easy.

Anything else?

I would highly recommend the ABC. I was reluctant to go into hospital for the birth of my son and the ABC was the perfect compromise as it meant minimal medical intervention but located within the hospital if anything went wrong.
