"Thank you"

About: Pinderfields General Hospital

I had my first baby at Pinderfields in May 2015 and would recommend the hospital without hesitation. I also stayed on the maternity ward for a while during my pregnancy due to illness and was looked after very well then too. My waters broke early and I did not go in to established labour within 24 hours so I was induced. I found the induction very traumatic but the midwives and consultant explained everything and gave me as much tune as they possibly could to fully dilate without ordering a C Section. I did manage to deliver naturally in the end and am thankful for the care I was given, even though the ward was extremely busy that weekend. I would have liked to have used the pool but understand why it was not advised.
