"I have given birth in three different hospitals..."

About: Frimley Park Hospital (Frimley)

I have given birth in three different hospitals now, Chelsea and Westminster, jersey and lastly frimley. I can not recommend frimley more. The care was fantastic, the midwives and care assts helpful, realistic about what is practical as a mother and what works for you. The after care was superb and I was out and feeling really well recovered much more quickly than from previous births. I would almost go so far as to say I would have more children just so I could give birth at frimley but think might husband might have issues! Honestly though - many hospitals fall down on the aftercare and cite volume as the problem. Frimley look after 7000 or so births a year but never once did I feel neglected. It's an exceptionally well run and unit that deserves every accolade going.

Response from Frimley Park Hospital

Thank you so much for sharing your feedback on NHS Choices. We have a great maternity team and they, like all our staff, endeavour to treat patients as individuals no matter how busy the department gets. We're not quite up to 7,000 babies a year yet (closer to 6,000) but more and more mums have been choosing Frimley Park in recent years and we have increased our capacity. We are just completing a major refurbishment including the addition of a midwife led birth suite to the unit, which we expect to improve patient care even further.
