About: Heartlands Hospital

I recently had a c section and stayed in the Aspen ward. I have to say, the experience went above and beyond any expectations I had. The staff could not do enough for us, they were so friendly, knowledgable and supportive throughout our five day stay. From the surgery to when we were discharged, nothing was too much. Our daughter also spent two nights in the neonatal unit, who were also exemplary, and made what was a difficult time for us, easier. I would thoroughly recommend.
