"First birth - very satisfied"

Fantastic care & attention from both midwives (one student) who supported me through the labour & birth of my first child. Also received fantastic help from the person who helped me into the shower & supplied my husband & I with food & drink following the birth. Brilliant support & help with breastfeeding.
Private room for the night was supplied (at a cost) & was very clean. Staff on the ward were very pleasant & were also a great help with breastfeeding.
Slightly disappointed with the treatment received before labour was fully established earlier in the day. I think the midwife was trying to be efficient but this just came across as being abrupt & unempathetic...very much made me feel like an inconvenience, which was upsetting following days of contractions & little sleep. This turned out to be the midwife in charge.
All things considered I had a very positive experience & will be more than happy to return if I have anymore children.
