"Maternity care/a&e visits"

About: Whipps Cross University Hospital

I gave birth to my son here and the midwifery team were fantastic, I couldn't have asked for more support. My one complaint would be that I was left alone on a ward from the beginning of my labour until I was ready to push in the morning after visiting times had begun again, and I would've really appreciated having my husband there at that point - silly visiting rules!

I have also had great a&e care here (a suspected mini-stroke, but was thankfully a hemiplegic migraine). The care was thorough and I got the all-clear after a CT scan.
