About: Royal Bolton Hospital

I would just like to say a huge thank you to everyone who helped me through my pregnancy. Unfortunately my waters broke at 28 weeks and therefore I had to spend lots of time in and out of the hospital. I was regularly monitored on the anti natal day unit and had several meeting and scan appointments.

I was I under the care of the doctor and I would just like to thank them for all their care and help. The doctor is an amazing person who is very concerned about ensuring that mother and child say safe. The doctor is personal and always explains things to their patients themselves making sure that I was always aware of my care plan and what was happening. The doctor instantly made me feel relaxed and I knew that both myself and my baby would be fine. The staff on the day unit were also fantastic and very caring. In particular one nurse who always went above and beyond her duty as the nurse and looked after me. I honestly believe that they were my guardian angel and made sure that my beautiful boy arrived safe. The nurse is a credit to your hospital. The staff helped me deal with everything and explained everything to me clearly. I always felt involved in the process and the care felt personal to me and my situation.

Thank you all- my perfect little boy arrived safe at just 34 weeks. Thank you again.
