"Good maternity care overall"

About: Birmingham Women's Hospital / Maternity care

(as the patient),

I delivered my baby in March 2015 and had an enjoyable experience overall. There were some elements that could have been better, mainly communication between shifts/departments.

Every individual I encountered was kind and knowledgeable, happy to answer questions and offer to help. Antenatal care was thorough and I felt informed about processes that would happen (planned section).

I also used neonatal services for some time and again very caring staff albeit it some communication issues at times. Catering and housekeeping staff were lovely... always ready with a cup of tea, a smile and a kind word. I looked forward to seeing them!

Overall I would happily recommend and return should I need to. Thank you to all x
