"Caring and professional midwife at Rotherham"

About: Rotherham Hospital / Maternity care

(as a relative),

My sister had to have her baby in hospital over christmas after a long planning process to be able to have her homebirth. The midwife that evening (Heather) was a credit to the hospital, offering support and understanding about how upset we were. She was very caring and professional and supported my sister to have a wonderful outcome of a very healthy baby girl. Heather did her upmost to ensure my sister understood fully why a home birth was no longer an option.

Well done to Heather for giving us our faith back in Rotherham Hospital.
