I went in to fern ward for an induction. I was on fern ward for two days. The first night was too noisy, the radio was still on quite late and out of all the empty cubicles, a couple was put in one next to me. There phones were going off etc yet nobody told them to keep the noise down. I didn't get any sleep before I ended up going into labour. On the second day of my induction I had a student midwife and they were absolutely brilliant, they came to check on me regularly and was so lovely. If nobody mentioned that they were a midwife I wouldn't have known at all. Overall my care on fern ward was very good! All I can say though is that the price of the coffee shops and food is so expensive and I wasn't allowed to leave the hospital to go elsewhere. Even though I didn't get to go to the Bracken Birthing Centre, my experience on Fern was good.
