"Fantastic maternal care!"

About: Norfolk & Norwich University Hospital

Once again I found myself in receipt of excellent care on the delivery suite, with staff who worked incredibly hard and with care and good humour to make sure that myself and my baby were well looked after and safe. In contrast to my previous visit to Blakeney, I found the midwives to be accommodating, caring, considerate and willing to do anything they could to help me, including changing my baby for me when I wasn't able to, helping her to latch on, sitting and chatting with me when I was emotional and finding spare nappies when I ran out. I am very pleased to see the visiting hours have changed and hope that this one day extends to partners being able to stay overnight should they wish to.

I am also pleased with the quality and variety of the food. All staff - midwives, anaesthetists, doctors, catering staff, everyone - helped me no end to make this visit as comfortable as it could be. Thank you.
