"Maternity care"

About: Derriford Hospital

Anything else?

I gave birth to twin girls on the 13/08/2013 and had a fabulous team of midwifes, nurses and doctors, I was cared for from my waters being broken by a student midwife and a midwife, both were fantastic and listened to mine and my partners concerned, both were very supportive and caring and focused on me and my obs throughout my labour and due to this I was able to give birth to my twins naturally. At 8pm another person took over my care until the babies arrived at 23.15 and 23.24, she was very efficient and caring and made me feel relaxed throughout the pushing stage. I cannot thank these ladies enough for everything they did for us, the anathelogists were awesome and made me fully aware of my epidural information and were very relaxing when it came to the epidural being put in. If my thanks could be passed on to the staff.
