"baby born october 2015"

About: Russells Hall Hospital

My 3rd baby was born october 2015. After loosing my 2nd baby to pprom at 18 weeks in sept 2014 i was understandably anxious throughout this pregnancy but the staff were amazing i was consultant led so had extra appointments and scans and saw a midwife weekly from 16 weeks for bp check both at the surgery and at home depending on my day off as i was still working full time up till 36 weeks. I was induced so was in hospital for 4 days before my baby was born and 1 day after. My labour was progressing well apart from the fact i had 2 epidurals and neither worked!! But right at the last min my babys heartbeat dropped and i was rushed to theatre she was delivered very quickly by forceps and wasnt breathing but they resucitated her and shes now a happy healthy 19 week old , our lovely rainbow baby. Thank you so much for looking after us so well all the midwifes were amazing!
