"Exceptional"

About: Princess Anne Hospital

My husband and I were sadly given a poor diagnosis with our baby at 20 weeks. I was admitted to give birth which was obviously a very sad and traumatic time. I can't express how amazing every single person there was during our stay, and the dignity afforded to our little boy was nothing short of phenomenal. We were able to choose when appointments were, and after the birth we were able to decide what to do in relation to meeting him. They even gave us a memory box and a double room on our last night so our baby could stay with us as long as we liked. They even arranged the funeral as we decided that we would like to have a ceremony for him. I wish I could express how truly grateful myself and my husband are.
