"Excellent maternity services"

About: City Hospital campus

I recently gave birth to my first child at city hospital. I was supported at the sanctuary birth centre with my labour. The staff were excellent, very supportive, caring and helped me and my husband feel informed. This ultimately helped me remain relaxed and the labour was pretty swift.

I was then supported on the ward for a couple of days to help me establish breast feeding. Again the staff were excellent and gave me that bit of extra support to help me feed my son. We are now at home and everything is going well!! A big Thank you to all the staff in the sanctuary birth centre and Lawrence ward for making my experience a pleasant one.
