"Midwives at Wishaw General Hospital"

About: Wishaw General Hospital / Maternity care

(as the patient),

I would just like to take some time to show my appreciation for the midwives in Wishaw General.

In Feb 2014 we were blessed with a baby boy. It was not an easy labour and resulted in an emergency section but the midwives made the experience so much easier by being so supportive, caring and calming. There was not once that myself or my husband were left alone to worry or wonder what was happening. A special thank you to midwife Lisa who helped us so much.

Just yesterday we attended Wishaw again but this time in different circumstances as I sadly miscarried our second baby. The staff in epas, from the sonographer to the midwives could not have been more supportive. Massive thank you to Lynn and Louise in epas who made a sad time a little easier for us. We have left with a lot of support options and also some very precious ideas in remembrance to our little angel. Thank you again.

Dear JaneyKyle,

I am so sorry for your loss.

Thank you for taking the time to get in touch at what I know will be a very difficult and emotional time.

I will certainly pass on your kind words to Lisa, Lynn, Louise and the rest of the EPAS staff. I hope you are able to access the support that is right for you and your family going forward.

Please get in touch if there is anything more we can do to help.

Kind Regards
