"Helped my journey as a mother"

About: Leeds General Infirmary / Maternity care

(as the patient),

I gave birth at the LGI in September 2016. The care I received was second to none. It was absolutely fantastic, especially from staff on ward 36. I was struggling to breastfeed and my baby wouldn't latch for hours and hours but the girls persevered and kept me from being anxious about baby being hungry. They had plenty of time to support me whenever I needed them to and always went the extra mile to teach me how to feed my baby. If it weren't for them, I wouldn't be breastfeeding now. You girls are worth your weight in gold. As a first time mummy, you honestly helped my journey as a mother get off to the right start and I can't thank you enough.

The only thing I feel could be improved was the food.
