"Best maternity unit"

About: Leicester General Hospital

My wife was giving birth to our 3rd child.

First was at LRI which was a nightmare.

Second at LGH much better experience.

Third was here at LGH and all i can say is amazing.

My wife went in a few days early as she was quite big but was in alot of pain, she stayed in the ward for a few days where she was very well looked after, from food to roulet trips.

She went into labour at around 4 am after a midwife made her do some excercises on a birth ball.

From the time she was in labour we were never left alone,

Always being monitored, very helpful midwives.

My baby was born at 9.12 lbs as you can imagine mustve been a very hard delivery but the midwives were very supportive all the way through, monitoring every single aspect from contractions to back pain to heart beat.

One of the best delivery suites you can go to and would definately reccomend everybody to use LGH and NOT LRI.

Dear reviewer, thank you for taking the time to review the Maternity Service at Leicester General Hospital.

Your comments have been circulated to the teams involved in your wife's care during labour.

We are sorry that your wife would appear to have had a better experience at LGH than our other maternity hospital (LRI), we endeavour to provide the very best service across all of our sites.

Best wishes, Communications Team, Leicester's Hospitals.
