"Midwifes brilliant"

About: Medway Maritime Hospital

I gave birth to my daughter in April in the delivery suite, was impressed with the midwife I had they were lovely, very compassionate and made me feel less frightened, I even asked for a photo of them and my daughter so I could show her when she's older.

However the person who checked my daughter the next day had a cold and proceeded to put their finger in her mouth after blowing their nose on a tissue from their pocket, so I wasn't happy about that, they then undid her nappy and walked off leaving her exposed, apart from them the midwifes were brilliant.
