"Wonderful midwives"

About: Forth Valley Royal Hospital / Maternity unit

(as the patient),

I just want to say a massive thank you to the Tulip team and all of the midwives that dealt with us during my pregnancy, labour, birth and beyond. Each and every person we were looked after by was fantastic and I'm so sad to have been discharged from their care. It's bittersweet, however as they are the reason that my daughter is doing so well. My husband and I have been delighted with the standard of care in both the community and at Forth Valley Royal. The midwives are so professional, yet they feel like friends, and I am so happy to have had such a positive experience at what can be such a scary time for first time parents.

Dear littleteapot88

Congratulations to you and your husband on the birth of your little girl!

Thank you so much for your amazing feedback. Becoming a parent is a wonderful time but, as you say, can also be very scary so it is terrific to hear that the staff helped make it such a positive experience. I am sure the Tulip Team will also have enjoyed the privilege of caring for you and your family at this special time.

I will share your posting with the Team and the Team Leader who will also pass it on to the other staff. I know they will all be very appreciative of your wonderful comments and praise.

With best wishes for all the thrilling times that lie ahead with your wee girl and perhaps the Tulip Team will see you again?

Kindest regards
