"The midwives were fantastic, professional ..."

About: Darent Valley Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked

The midwives were fantastic, professional and made my two night stay very comfortable. I had to be induced with my 3rd child and my first to be born at DVH. The midwives gave me all the information I needed and were courteous and professional at all times. On the third try of inducing I went into ful labour exceptionally quickley, I was advised to have a bath which sped things along then told to get out of the bath as things moved very quickley. The birthing room was well equipped and spacious and clean. The lead midwife was exceptionally good and after a short while I had m daughter.

What could be improved


Anything else?

The midwives and obstetrics staff throughout my pregnancy were excellent - a special thanks to The Doctor and the midwives on the ward.
