"Incredible service"

About: Darlington Memorial Hospital

I gave birth to our son at DMH on 16/7. We are so grateful to the amazing team of staff on labour ward. The team were awesome - I was on labour ward for over 24 hours so we met quite a few of them! From the support staff, midwives and doctors- everyone was kind, caring and professional - they worked together so well. I would not hesitate to recommend the maternity care services in Darlington - I have had an entirely positive experience and do not believe better care could be recieved. The community midwives, labour ward, delivery suite - all are excellent and should be used as a standard for other maternity services to aspire to. Thank you doesn't come close to what I'd like to say to the whole team.
