"Great maternity experience"

About: Queen's Hospital / Maternity care

I went into hospital as advised by triage after feeling reduced movements from by baby and 40 weeks and 6 days pregnant.

I was seen to quickly by midwives and saw a doctor. They advised that i was going to be offered an induction as I was over due and risk of still birth.

Waited for a bed on antenatal.

I was induced and transferred to labour ward 6am following day.

My daughter was born at five pm.

Transferred to the post natal ward that evening and stayed till lunchtime the next day.

I had a positive experience in all parts of care. A great, friendly team who deserve recognition
