"Overdue labour at Tameside General"

About: Tameside General Hospital / Maternity care

(as the patient),

Two weeks overdue: labour ward.

Everything informed me and made it clear about everything that would happen. Made me and my partner confident and comfortable. Had many stages of labour - induce, sweep/internals, epidural, forceps, ventouse, 02 checks on baby's head.

All these stages even though intense I always felt safe/content with the actions of staff.
