"Overall Exceptional care for my high risk..."

About: Stoke Mandeville Hospital

My daughter was born early and safely thanks to the hospital consultants and day assessment unit who continually monitored me after I was diagnoised with IGUR (most likely due to a failing placena. I now have a healthy (and very chubby) 10 month old. My only criticism is that after my C section the two of the nurses on the ward wanted me out very soon and criticised me for using the pain relief prescribed. I was made to feel like I should feel better than I did within 30 hours of the c section which was horrible because I was in alot of pain and I didnt know what they were giving me was so strong and not permitted in breastfeeding when they knew I was breastfeeding!. One even suggested I shouldnt be on the ward because my baby was in NICU! But the majority are exceptional people who saved my daughters life who I cannot praise enough.
