"Maternity unit"

About: King's Mill Hospital

Anything else?

I recenetly had my daughter at kings mill, i could not fault the hospital really at all, i ended up staying in for a couple of nights, where i felt well looked after and cared for, i loved the envolvement the staff gave to the students talking to them all the time about how they do things and why they are done this way. Giving the students plenty of oppertunities for supervised practise. The ladies that delivered my baby were amazing and so caring, talking to me all the time, and someone was with me throughout my whole labour, which made me feel at ease, the lovely midwife that was with me, finished her shift just after my baby arrived, she went away and did my paperwork and i assumed had gone home as her shift had finished a while ago, only for her to return to praise and congratulate me and say hello to my daughter, what a lovely personal touch. Only negative thing i could really say is the hygiene of the toilets in the reception area where not good at all, but the toilets on the ward were kept clean and tidy at all times and i suppose there the important places really - where there patients are. Thank you to all at Kings Mill for making my first experience of child birth one with a positive memory on all accounts. X
