"Emergency check up 24 weeks & 26 weeks pregnant"

About: Heartlands Hospital

I had initially heard awful things about Heartlands maternity unit enough to put anyone off.

However, I have now visited three times and on all three occasions ive had a pleasant service.

The first time was for my 20 week scan - Sonographer was lovely and helpful.

Second time was I was involved ina road traffic accident, they didn't keep me waiting, and checked me as soon as I arrived.

The third time I had no movement of baby for 24 hours, again I called in, they invited me in, did not keep me waiting checked baby waiting, and the midwife was sooo nice and amazing, and re-assured me, and also said not to leave it so log next time and if I was worried to come in.

I just hope that my labour goes just as well come June.
