"Fantastic Experience"

About: Russells Hall Hospital

I gave birth to my beautiful daughter by elective c-section in August 2015 and cannot praise the staff at RH highly enough. The theatre staff in particular were excellent. The anaesthetists were absolutely fantastic providing comfort and reassurance throughout.

I was very nervous prior to the procedure but the friendliness and professionalism of all the staff gave me confidence and made me feel a lot calmer!

Back on the ward the midwives were very supportive and helped me achieve my aim of being discharged the next day.

Prior to discharge the support from the breastfeeding volunteers was really good and much appreciated.

I will always be extremely thankful to all at RH who made my experience so wonderful and memorable and I wouldn't hesitate in choosing RH again for any future visits!!
