"I gave birth at St Mary's ..."

About: St Mary's Hospital (Manchester)

(as the patient),

What I liked

I gave birth at St Mary's Hospital in April. The staff were very friendly and dedicated to their work.

I was very pleased with the care we received and am very grateful to the staff.

What could be improved

I can only comment on the old building which was closed a few weeks ago. The rooms were too small and sharing a room with three other mums and four babies was very difficult as it meant hardly any sleep at all.

I also think that it would have been good to get more support with breastfeeding while still in the hospital. Hardly any advice was given. I had to seek it on several occasions.
