I had an emergancey section 2 weeks ago and was very scared. The midwife in labour ward made me feel very relaxed although I seen many different midwives through my labour ward experience.
After a few hours I was then put into Ward 8. I was unsettled and felt anxious about sharing a room with 3 other ladies when I had a catheter in and in so much pain. The midwife looking after me was Teri. She cared for me for 2 days and she was amazing, made me feel better, helped my anxiety and kept on top of my pain for those 2 days. Teri and a nursery nurse helped me breastfeed and my wee boy successfully breastfed. I never really met that many other staff in ward 8.
A great experience and a huge thankyou to the midwife Teri for all her care and support. A credit to your midwifery team
