"Excellent care"

About: Darent Valley Hospital

I was brought in to be induced on the 23rd of October as I was over due. In general all the care I received was of a high standard. I really felt I was a person an not just another paitenct . If face even the cleaning staff were friendly and helpful for the duration of my stay. There are a two members of your midwifery team though that made the whole birthing experience a great experience. Firstly as second year midwife, with out her kind words of advice encouragement and care I think I would have broken down in to a mess. She kept me strong and positive believing In myself. She is going to go on to be a wonderful midwife and anyone who has her is very lucky. Then another midwife who delivered my baby. It was a very fast delivery and I was panicked, the midwife kept me reassured and calm for a safe fast delivery. Very professional care. The whole team in the aspen ward were very supportive too. Especially when I had trouble feeding baby at 3am! Extremely happy.
