"Extremely satisfied with labour ward and postnatal"

About: Barnsley Hospital

Anything else?

I was very well look after during giving birth in January 2013. The staff informed me throughout and offered very much attention, which I really needed. They also were very careful with my baby's examination and that is why I had to stay in same-sex accommodation for a few extra days. The only issue was with establishing feeding - the although, the support worker was very helpful, not enough and peaceful time is provided for establishing breast feeding. Physio therapy was brilliant as well, they discharged me only when they made sure everything was totally healed.
