"My daughter giving birth to her son"

About: Medway Maritime Hospital / Maternity

(as a relative),

My daughter was treated with such respect & kindness in the medway birthing suit by everyone. She was supported & so was her partner & I every step of the way, my grandson was born in a peaceful calm person centered atmosphere as she had asked for.

After the birth she had complications & needed emergency surgery they responded quickly & calmly, she was seen on a Sunday night by a wonderful surgical team that explained everything & went to theater quickly. Her fears were reduced because they supported us all every step of the way.

She recovered quickly & I cannot thank them enough it was an emotional roller coaster but they calmed our fears all the way.
