"friendly staff :-D"

About: Burnley General Hospital

I went to burnley for a c section. The midwife I met on the antenatal ward was lovely she kept me informed on what was going on. The midwife was with me for the c section and she was brilliant so warm and friendly. I wish all midwives were like her. The obstetrician did a brilliant job in delivering my beautiful baby girl <3
