"Community Midwife Team (Home birth team)"

About: East Surrey Hospital / Maternity

(as the patient),

I cannot thank the Community Midwife Team at East Surrey Hospital enough. My wife had the most amazing care from every single community midwife (including Kathryn- the student midwife).

They all made my wife's labour experience at home a calming and positive one.

All of the midwives were genuinely interested in my wife and our new arrival.

I cannot thank Alison, Rachel, Tracey, Barbara, Polly, (Deborah- I think was her name) & Kathryn Midwife student enough. You all deserve a massive pay rise for the jobs you do. Thank you again for all of your help and looking after my little family.

Dear Steve/Alex

It is always good to hear of such a positive experience of home labour and the work our community midwife teams do to contribute to this. As a student midwife in particular feedback such as yours is confirmation that you are doing a good job. I will make sure that your thanks and praise are passed on to Kathryn and the other team members.

Congratulations to your both on your new baby.

With best wishes,

Cathy White
