"Emergency trip to triage"

About: Burnley General Hospital / Maternity care

I can't thank the staff enough! I had a horrible morning after having reduced movements and called the midwife triage who told me to come in straight away. I got there and was found looking a little lost in the corridor by the person I had spoken to on the phone, they were amazing from the initial phone call to settling us in a room. The midwife came to see us and made us feel so at ease, they were professional and comforting through everything. Everything was fine in the end and I wasn't made to feel silly or that I had over reacted at all. I was quite panicked and teary but am very glad I went. Again, can't say thank them enough, I'm even feeling more relaxed for the actual labour too now after seeing how everyone was! If I could give more stars I would :)
