"Thank you."

About: Frimley Park Hospital (Frimley)

My waters broke 14th of August (at 36 +6 weeks) and I went to the maternity ward. Labour didn't progress over the next 24 hours so I was induced on the 15th. Labour still didn't progress very easily so I went for an emergency c-section early hours of the 16th. It was a hard slog but the ward were amazing and were with me every step of the way and were very efficient and supportive. The midwifes are so nice! Had I not have had so many midwifes and nurses on hand or the support I received, my baby may not have survived as he had his cord round his neck so the call to c-section was vital.

My baby is beautiful and I can't thank you enough for the help you provided.

The only fault I would have is that it could be made more comfortable for partners, as I was in the ward for 5 days with a tiny prem baby my partner needed to be with me and he didn't find it easy to get any sleep as the chairs were not great.
