Just had my baby girl over 3 weeks ago at the grand old age of 48 and was classed as a high risk pregnancy throughout. The care during my pregnancy was second to none - the doctor and Team were excellent. I had scans every month and saw my Consultant and also care from community midwifes. My delivery was induced due to a medical condition and a member of staff and Midwifes on delivery suite were excellent - baby heartbeat was up and down during labour - she was born with cord wrapped tight around her neck. Stayed in 2 nights on ward 10 and found some staff were more attentive than others and ward was very busy. Had to return for a further two nights due to my baby developing severe jaundice and had to have intensive treatment in SCBU - excellent caring staff. Sister on ward 10 - very supportive and even rang me when I got home to make sure all was well. Thank you to everyone from Deborah & Martin and Baby Charlotte.
