"Emergency caesarian: Staff were amazing and supportive"

About: Stafford Hospital / Maternity care

(as the patient),

In April I came in to stafford maternity ward and I have to say all staff I encountered were fantastic. Unfortunately my labour wasnt quite straight forward and I ended up needing an emergency Caesarian and everyone was amazing and really supportive through a very difficult time.

I would like to say an extra special Thankyou to the HCSW Lorraine who went above and beyond for me during my two night stay. I struggled to do basic tasks shortly after my surgery and nothing was too much trouble even when she was busy. She's a lovely lady and really helped me so much and I can't begin to thank her enough. The maternity and anaesthetic team were remarkable and I would highly recommend anyone to go to stafford.

Thank you all again.
