What I liked
I have opted to have my baby at Lister instead of my local hospital (L&D). I went for my booking appointment today as I am due in 10 weeks time. I am very impressed with the services at Lister, the staff are fantastic, I felt I very relaxed and was given all the time I needed to talk things through without feeling rushed at all.
Previously I have felt very anxious about the birth and did not feel very comnfortable at L&D, but since my visit today at Lister I am totally prepared and relaxed for the big day.
The new unit will hopefully be up and running when I have my baby which will make my experience even better, the new unit is well deserved by all staff at Lister.
What could be improved
I was waiting an hour over my appointment time to be seen but to be honest I do not mind as I am glad patients are able to have the time they need with the midwife rather than being rushed so that others are not waiting too long. I saw the midwife for 45 minutes today as I had a lot of concerns and questions. I was not rushed at all and this allowed me to discuss everything that was on my mind.
A very pleased Mummy to be.
