"I was at PAH for the birth of ..."

About: Princess Alexandra Hospital (Harlow)

(as the patient),

What I liked

I was at PAH for the birth of our son. The midwives on the labour ward and birthing unit were amazing. The teams were helpful, supportive and very caring. I was well looked after and had every confidence in what they were doing. My labour experience was great and I would definitely recommend them to anyone. I was extremely nervous as this is our first baby and my fears soon vanished. We can't thank the teams enough.

What could be improved

Possibly the food - but I didn't really have much of an appetite anyway. At the end of the day I would rather the care be exceptional and the food not so good rather than the other way around!
