"Ward D and women's and children's centre"

About: Blackpool Victoria Hospital

I was so impressed with everybody who i met with over the weekend giving birth to my son. Delivery suite and birth centre midwives were amazing full of fab information and although I came and went about 3-4 times, I didn't feel under pressure or feel like I shouldn't have been there. Special mention to the midwife who was with me for their whole shift. The doctor, was fab too straight to the point and had me in and out of theatre in time. Midwives on ward D were fab too. Nothing was ever too much and they gave me some sound advice through my overnight stay. They turned what had the potential to be a very traumatic weekend into a perfect one, despite the pain.
