"Could not be happier"

About: Queen's Hospital (Romford)

I had my baby here on the 1st August. I was booked in to be induced on the 31st July, from the minute I came for my appointment the staff were very friendly and informative. Later that afternoon my contractions started and I was transferred to the labour ward. I had group strep b so had to be on it antibiotics. The midwives were amazing and even when it got tough at the end they were keeping us well informed the whole way. We then had to stay in for 3 days as both myself and the baby needed antibiotics. The staff were all so friendly and the baby nurses were my favourite. So lovely and gentle and I felt like I could ask them anything if I had any concerns without being judged. We were lucky enough to have a side room and my husband was able to stay with me. It was my first time in a hospital and the food was much better than I would have expected.

After hearing bad reviews I would a little bit worried. However there is not one bad word I can say about my experience at queens. I am so grateful for the care and information I received during my stay. All the staff were absolutely amazing and I can't thank them all enough.
