"Cvs sampling"

About: Birmingham Women's NHS Foundation Trust

I just wanted to leave a positive comment about our experience of the staff on the Fetal medicine ward. My husband and I received the phone call that all 12 week pregnant women dread that our baby was high risk for downs, Edwards and patuas. We decided to head to Birmingham and have the cvs sampling done to find out for sure want was going on with our baby. From the moment we arrived staff were caring, sensitive and attentive. They took their time with us answered all our questions and never rushed us. They helped us so much to deal with what's was a very difficult day and I can't thank them enough for their kindness.
