"Childbirth and post natal problems!"

About: Kettering General Hospital

Kettering hospital is a lovely place with caring staff especially in the maternity wards!

I had to have an emergency c section on the 27th July 2015. My midwife was amazing and stayed with me and my husband the whole time keeping us informed and helping me no end, they had a student with them who was also amazing.

Maternity ward was fantastic all the midwives were so caring, but the midwife assistants could be a little more patient, I gave breast feeding a good go and felt a little patronised by a few of them who seemed to lose patience with me when I was struggling.

A&E and the paramedics who helped me in the early hrs of Monday 19th who came to my house, so kind and helpful. I have a few problems post natal but I know I can put all my trust in Kettering hospital to make me feel better. Thank you to everyone amazing job xxx
