"Birth of my daughter"

About: Medway Maritime Hospital / Maternity

(as the patient),

I was induced in December and the induction went incredibly quickly after a slow start. The process was thoroughly explained and all our questions answered. When the process started to speed up we weren't believed until I Started pushing.

I was rushed into delivery and the new midwife took charge and made us feel supported. Within twenty minutes we were holding our daughter. I couldn't rate our midwife more she made it all seem so easy and as if I was the biggest hero in the world instead of someone going through what millions had already done.

I had to have surgery after and all the staff were great. Fantastic unit. Great support and would do it all again there in a heart beat,
