"Great care."

About: Southend Hospital

Anything else?

After my waters broke I attended the hospital for an induction of my labour. In the 6 days I was in the hospital the midwifes were all caring and told you what they were doing and why. I eventually needed an emergency caesarean section on the evening of 26/10 and whilst all the staff who dealt with me were good I would like to especially praise the anaesthetist that accompanied me during the operation. They explained everything clearly and thoroughly and kept me calm throughout what was a nerve racking and tense experience.
