"amazing service and support provided for both..."

About: St Peter's Hospital (Chertsey)

I was admitted for induction in Joan Booker ward at 5pm on 11th of October and was very carefully and precisely explained about the 3 stages of induction procedure by the duty midwife who then induced me and tried to make me as comfortable as possible.I was monitored for an hour for contractions and baby's heart beat then and once more post midnight. At 4am the propess fell off and I informed the next duty midwife who took over and checked me for dilation and inserted a new one and said I was 4cm dilated and immediately called the labour ward and booked me a room and asked me to inform my partner to arrive. Earlier the midwife had also helped me with the tens machine and during shifting to the labour ward helped carry all my belongings as I was in pain. In the labour ward all the midwives and doctors were extremely helpful throughout my labour and explained to me and my partner every procedure carefully. Even after the birth the support provided was amazing be if for breastfeeding or checking on my stitches and the care provided during the overnight stay. I am extremely thankful to each and every midwife/doctor present during that day. It's because of them I had a very smooth delivery.
