"St. Mary Hospital,ManchestWard 64/C-section..."

About: St Mary's Hospital (Manchester)

I gave birth to my first child by C section in the Saint Mary's Hospital in Manchester a couple of weeks ago.

After the section I had to stay in ward 64 for three days. I would like to thank the midwife who was in charge of the night shift on 25/04/2016 and early morning 26/04/2016.

They were very caring to mothers and babies and was spending good time with every patient to ensure all the patient have received a high quality caring throught the shift.

They were very kind and passionate about educating new moms and used every opportunity to do so.

I also would like to thank the midwife who was in charge of the day shift on 27/04/2016 who delivered a professional support during my stay.
