My son became ill at 2 days old so we took him to out of hours who sent for an ambulance and asked that we be taken to forth valley royal hospital instead of our local hospital because he was born in forth valley, they suspected an infection and quickly got a cannula in him with IV antibiotics.
As it was nearly morning the nurses encouraged us to go get breakfast and said they'd look after baby. As I had only given birth 2 days before I was still in alot of pain and the doctors that came to check on my son made sure I was okay too and made sure I still got my postnatal check ups in maternity triage.
The nurses also took my little boy during the night to let me rest because they knew I hadn't slept with being so worried, it was a very worrying and emotional time for us but they made it more bearable and looked after him so well, they were all amazing and definitely deserve medals.
