Throughout my pregnancy I receieved excellent care from both the Community Midwives (Thank you!) and the staff at the Antenatal Clinic. I was treated with dignity and respect, involved in all discussions regarding my care and my personal feelings were taken into consideration when discussing my care plan. The quality of care I received while in labour (thank you) was outstanding, I felt safe, listened to and respected. Having been a guest on the antenatal ward and the postnatal ward I can honestly say how brilliant the staff are, supportive and understanding (thank you). The ward has a happy but calm atmosphere with very caring and passionate staff that take the time to listen to any concerns. I needed some help with breast feeding my son and I received excellent support on the ward even after I became unwell, Unfortunately I became rather poorly 48hrs after I had given birth to my son but the staff were extremely quick to act and after a short stay back on the Labour Ward (as I required close monitoring) I was soon back on the postnatal ward then was discharged home. The knowledge of the staff, their passion and drive to treat each patient as an individual not a number and provide everyone with outstanding care is evident. I had my first child at Leighton a number of years previously and would have rated the care I received as poor at best, however clearly things have changed and the staff deserve being praised for what they have achieved in just a few years. Once again, thank you to all the staff that looked after us both - you are all amazing :)
