"Thank you to the team that helped me"

About: Princess Royal University Hospital / Maternity

I have been meaning to write this review since giving birth to my first baby boy on 19th May 2017. The head matron completely changed my whole experience at the hospital - they were phenomenal in getting me my epidural that I was so so desperate for. I cannot thank them enough as it seemed that before their intervention there was going to be a much longer and painful wait. The person who gave the epidural was also fantastic, as was the registrar who got my baby out after a long labour. I also had a lovely experienced midwife towards the end who was so supportive and lovely. I think these people don't get enough credit for what they do, in keeping near enough all of us safe and well and our babies - yes the hospital is crammed and there's not enough staff but it's not the fault of the staff themselves it's the system we are in. Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart.
