I had a emergency section for the birth of my first baby 2 weeks ago. I was really scared and the midwife in ward 7 was very calming. My little boy was born safe and sound at 6lb 8oz. I was then sent to ward 8 which is the postnatal ward. I was a bit anxious about being in a room with 4 other women and was in alot of pain. But my midwife Teri was brilliant. She looked after me for 2 days in a row before I went home. She always made sure I was ok and told me where she would be if I needed her. I struggled to breastfeed but Teri showed me how to get him latched on. I was in real pain and teri and the nightshift staff always made sure I was getting my pain killers
Thank you to all the midwifes and to Teri for her kind caring support. A credit to your team
