"Care before, during and after birth."

About: Burnley General Hospital

I was induced on the 20th May due to medical and burnley was so supportive and helpfully during my stay. My labour was very fast and I gave birth with in hours of being at hospital, because labour was fast approaching I was on my own right until the last minute until my partner got there. The midwife happily rang my partner for me because I couldn't talk, and I wasn't ever left on my own and without the support of the student midwifes I had I would of not been able to cope emotionally and physically. I am so greatful to all the midwifes that helped and I couldn't of asked for anyone better, they were all so kind, nice and patience with me. I was advised to stay in over night even though I gave birth at 9 in the morning, I really wanted to go home. On the postnatal ward they made me a priority and did mine and the babies check and was able to send us home the same day. Thank You Burnley for everything you did for me.
