"Lovely midwife kept me calm"

About: Wishaw General Hospital / Maternity care

(as the patient),

I visited Triage at Wishaw general hospital last week when I wasn't well.

The midwife was lovely, she helped keep me calm and made me feel a lot better. She kept my mind off things by telling stories and making me laugh.

So I just want to write this to thank her - Linda. Hopefully I will see you when I'm back in hospital to have my baby.

Dear 26ash,

Thank you for taking the time to contact us. I really hope you are feeling better now and it is always good to know that when women have to visit us during their pregnancy that the advice and support our staff provide reassures them. I will let Midwife Linda Krauskuas know that also you felt she kept you calm with her support and stories and that this made you feel better.

Take care and we look forward to seeing you on your next visit.

Best Wishes
