It's taken me forever to write this review but I made sure to come back as I do believe good reviews are forgotten about.
I had my son at QEH on the 6th April 2016 my midwife was phenomenal from start to finish. On arrival I was assisted by other professionals who monitored my contractions for about 2hrs before deciding to admit me, they quickly noticed I was struggling to breath in between contractions and the person held my hand and physically showed me what to do by having me copy them.
My labour was 22.5hrs and it was my first pregnancy and birth experience. The pain was excruciating but I felt very supported throughout the nurses and midwives explained everything before and as it was happening couldn't fault them one bit.
The nursing assistants were hilarious they were the only people that got me to crack a smile.
I just wish I could have been checked for dialation atleast 3 times within the time I was there but there but it was explained that frequent examinations increase the risk of infection and they didn't want to do things that were unnecessary at that time as I was progressing normally.
I am pregnant now and can't wait to go back and see the lovely staff at QEH.
