"Great experience. Well done everyone"

About: Birmingham Women's Hospital / Maternity care

(as the patient),

I was admitted to the hospital 2 weekends ago as I was 31 weeks pregnant with excrutiating pelvic pain due to my dislocated pelvis as a cause of the pregnancy.

I arrived on Saturday at 3: 00 in the morning where I was seen immediately, given medication and admitted to monitor me and the baby further.

Once on the 1st floor I had so much help, ranging from getting in/out of bed, to midwives fetching me breakfast, lunch and dinner, to helping me in the toilet.

I was there for 3 days and everyone was helpfull, cheerful and I when I had questions, these were answered with honesty. I worked in the medical field in the past in North America for 7 years and this is my fourth child, I am neither a new mum or a rockie to hospitals and I have to write a positive review when I see excellent care.

Bridgett, a +65 years old miswife, was fantastic, I wish I could put her in my pocket and bring her home. She was the best of them all, well, what else could you expect from a midewife who loves what she does so much, she just refuses to retire?

Great experience, I can't wait to go back to have my baby there in just 3 weeks!

Well done everyone! !
