"Midwife has a calm and easy manner"

About: Cumbernauld Community Maternity

(as the patient),

I had regular meetings with my midwife who would ask how I had been keeping and would check my urine, blood pressure, size and babies heartbeat. She was happy to listen and answer any questions and was available on the phone between visits any time I had a question. She even contacted a consultant at the hospital when I had a question that she was unable to answer. I particularly liked her calm and easy manner and the fact that she never put any pressure on me about breast feeding etc.

Dear hoy5

Thank you for your comments.

It is always reassuring to hear that you have a midwife who listens, gives advice and seeks answers appropriately. We aim to ensure that all women will receive this personalised approach and will be happy to inform the community team of your positive experience.

Best wishes
