"Brilliant staff in maternity"

About: Antrim Area Hospital / Maternity care

(as the patient),

I had my first child 7 years ago in antrim area. Even though I had to be induced and with the help of a vaccume my labour was calm thanks to the amazing staff.

This time my labour was not so straight forward, my baby decided she didn't want to move down the birth canal so it was of for a short trip to theatre, forceps and an episiotomy.

I was so thankful for the calm relaxed staff. Dr Quinn was brilliant and he explained everything that was going to happen and what was happening. The episiotomy Dr Quinn performed could not have went any better.

The anestheist who gave me my epidurals was so straight forward and reasurring too. The staff on the maternity ward were fantastic as well so caring and considerate. I couldn't ask for better hospitality than what I experienced 7years ago and 12 days ago. Really no faults at all.
