"great experience"

About: Royal Albert Edward Infirmary

We had our baby here on the 31.10.14. Staff were amazing towards us and acted like we had kown them for years which was very nice when you don't know what to expect. My pregnancy ended in an emergency C-section and everybody involved my partner to the best they could. One particular member of staff in thetre had said something to my partner along the lines of "do you want to come and see the baby after all he is yours too" I found this really comforting as we are in a same sex relationship and it was nice for my partner to be made to feel apart of what was going on also it shown great communication between staff as the man who said that I had not seen before. It was even more nice of staff who had left shift before our baby was to come and see him the next day. Overall staff were faultless, personally I had a great experience and I thank everyone that was iinvolved in my babys delivery.
