"Premature birth, dealt with amazingly.Rotherham"

About: Rotherham Hospital / Maternity care

(as the patient),

When our daughter arrived at 33 weeks, we were very frightened and shocked. We had never been around premature babies and everything was very new and very scary.

The staff at SCBU in Rotherham were amazing, and put us at ease, answered any questions we had and most importantly, looked after our daughter in a way that made us realise she was safe.

Its hard leaving your baby everyday, harder than anyone who hasn't been through it realises, but we had complete confidence in the staff that looked after our daughter. They even looked after me when I became poorly ten days after our daughter was born.

The SCBU staff at Rotherham really do an amazing job and I am grateful for them for caring for our gorgeous daughter in her early days.
