My daughter was admitted via the pregnancy assessment unit for induction of labour. I along with her husband was one of her birthing partners. The staff on assessment unit and in the labour ward were excellent. They explained everything to my daughter in simple and caring terms. They were professional and gave an air of confidence that was reassuring. In particular in the assessment unit a midwife and on the labour ward another midwife and a student midwife were exceptional as was the Dr who delivered my granddaughter. The post natal ward was adequate with the exception of one midwife who would have done better choosing a career where interpersonal skills were not required. However overall a very positive experience for all the family.
