"I was having a baby in the Rockingham ..."

About: Kettering General Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked

I was having a baby in the Rockingham wing. I found the labour ward were helpful, the staff checked on me regularly, and I was offered pain relief several times.

On the post labour ward my baby was checked on regularly.

What could be improved

I stayed for a day on one of the maternity wards, and although it was a nice enough place to be, I felt that I could have been given a little more attention, just to check that I was feeding the baby alright.
