(as the patient),

What I liked

I went into the labour ward to have my son, the midwives where all so upbeat and jolly it took my nerves away. After a long labour they encouraged me to give birth naturally just as i had wanted. After he came into the world one of the midwives noticed that i was deteirorating, losing blood very quickly, she didn't hesitate in her actions that probably saved my life. The room that i stayed in was nice and comfortable and above all clean. I thought the nurses, midwives and registars all worked together very well and i would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a hospital birth

Anything else?

I would like to say thank you to the nurse in the labour ward hopefully she'll still be there when i have my next!!
