I arrived at Wansbeck last September after my waters had broken with my third baby. As with my second child, my labour was progressing extremely quickly and by the time I arrived I was ready to push. In my panic I had forgotten to call the ward ahead of my arrival as you are supposed to do to check bed avail etc. but the staff made no issue with this and were very understanding. Having had two previous deliveries I was shocked to discover during delivery that my baby was breech and i panicked. The midwife however, was amazing. They reassured me every step of the way, made sure I was looked after and most importantly they made sure my daughter was delivered safely. I couldn't believe it when they told me after that it was their first breech delivery as they had been truly professional. The follow up staff were equally as helpful and I can't thank them enough, especially the midwife.
