"Excellent care, yet again from DMH."

About: Darlington Memorial Hospital

Having had my previous children in the hospital and moving away from Darlington I chose to go back to the Memorial Hospital for my latest delivery.

The care and reassurance from the midwives was fantastic, as it has been each time.

The midwives truly want what is best for you and the baby and supported my decisions through labour fully. They provided excellent care with a true warmth shown to me and my family.

All the midwives involved in my care were fantastic and I, along with my husband and newborn daughter, could not be happier with the care we received.

This fantastic high level of care and support carried on in the post natal care ward and I would highly recommend the maternity suite to anyone local.

Expect to be cared for with love, dignity and respect, as I have.

Thank you DMH.
