"Looked After So Well Delivering My First Child."

About: Royal Oldham Hospital

After hearing some reason bad press regarding Oldham Hospitals Maternity Services and also hearing horror stories from other people, it is safe to say I was even more nervous about delivering my child at Oldham Hospital. However when the time came, I was looked after so well from the moment that I stepped into the hospital (by a nurse who found my struggling to walk up the stairs to the birth centre) to being discharged the following day. The midwife who delivered my son was absolutely amazing. They kept me calm and relaxed the whole way through and I really could not have done it without them. The midwife made us feel individual - and even at the end it felt as though we all celebrated getting through the journey together. Also the after care I received from the next shift of midwifes was above and beyond - and both me and my husband could not have been treated any better. Truly an exceptional team who really care about the ladies who come into them. I would definately recommend this hospital to expectant mothers, and I would not think twice about delivering here again.
