I was planned for induction of labour on the Friday. Having been previously informed at clinic that this would take no longer than 3days, it soon became obvious this time frame didn’t take into account the wait for a space in labour ward. It would have been helpful if this potential time frame was discussed in clinic.This was very frustrating although I appreciate unavoidable. We waited a full 2 days without any intervention following the 1st pessary for a space and I think the communication could have been improved during this time. I would like to thank Beverley who was particularly helpful and approachable amongst the westburn ward staff. We were introduced to Zoe, our midwife for labour ward, who was absolutely brilliant and a real asset to AMH. She made the entire experience of labour fly by with her chat and kept us calm despite a previous poor experience of labour. We would also like to thank Fiona who came to assist in the final stages. Before the end of their shift on the Monday, we welcomed a beautiful baby boy into the world.
Thank you again for everything, the dedication and cheer you brought to us, and for spending your Christmas helping other families instead of spending it with your own.
