"Great first birth experience"

About: Leicester General Hospital / Maternity

So happy I picked the general to have my first baby . Millie was born three weeks early on 6.02.16 . I was induced early as she had stopped growing and her heart rate was all over the shop . From finding out she was lacking growth till the end of my pregnancy , The consultant was really caring and informative and so were all the staff I came into contact with on MAU , delivery suite and the after care ward . The nursery nurses were lovely too , spending a lot of time helping me to breastfeed and then got me an electric pump as she wasn't latching on .

My midwife and student midwife helped me to give birth safely and calmly and were happy to have a chit chat throughout my contractions which was nice . The food was nice , the place was clean except for hearing some woman coughing up phlem in the toilets. Couldn't fault it . Can't wait to come back .keep up the good work !!
