"Maternity Unit High Dependency."

About: The James Cook University Hospital

My daughter was admitted to James Cook to be induced on the 19th November 2015. She was cared for by a lovely midwife, who my daughter told me put her at ease. The midwife explained everything that was going to be done. She then moved to High Dependency ((Because of GD), the midwife again was so good and caring. After 7 hours in labour my beautiful Grandson Lincoln was born. The delivery was something I will never forget and the midwives where all superb. My daughter was then moved to one of the maternity wards, where she stayed until the 21st November. Again her care was second to none. I would like to thank all of the staff who cared for my daughter and grandson.
