"Fantastic care from a super maternity team"

About: Darlington Memorial Hospital

I recently stayed at DMH for an elective section. My little girl arrived safely on 14/3/16. The team on labour ward were fantastic, theatre staff, everyone.

I had a pretty rough time of it following delivery suffering with anxiety and worries. The community midwife team

Two members of staff in particular were brilliant, they could not do enough to help. My baby and I are now much happier and enjoying being a family with lots of support from daddy!

As an NHS employee I know how hard everyone works but I can honestly say I've never met a harder working bunch of people than those on labour ward/61.

thank you!
