"Had our daughter on 4th October 2017"

About: The Royal Victoria Infirmary / Maternity care

We were taken into labour on the night before the baby birth. Wife had 4cm dilation and then she opted to get Epidural. However after 12 hours the dilation didn’t increase. It was then the doctors decided to do the operation. We all were very anxious and worried as this was our first baby. By the grace of Almighty we had the baby. But I would like to personally put this into public domain that the staff was absolutely fantastic. The midwives involvement throughout was just so heartening. We had felt so much taken care of and all the staff made you felt at home. I have been to many different cocuntries and had the chance to visit different hospitals but the experience we had with the staff here in the 3 days we spent was something I’ll never forget. Me my wife and our little daughter are so thankful for everything.
