"Wonderful care throughout"

About: St Mary's Hospital (Manchester)

I attended St Marys for my second pregnancy including an elective c-section as I had a traumatic labour the first time at Wythenshaw hospital with a third degree tear. The care I received throughout was outstanding. I was very anxious about the birth due to the first time but everyone at St Marys made sure I felt relaxed and the c-section itself went really well. Everyone on the day were incredible including the aftercare on the recovery ward. I am so grateful to them and can't recommend this hospital enough.
