"Great labour experience"

About: King's Mill Hospital

Was referred to kings mill due to closures at my local maternity unit as lack of beds!

Made to feel welcome and was looked after from the time I arrived at 9:30pm and delivery at 01:35am.

Supporting staff, giving me choices and keeping me up to date either what was happening!

Also given a side room when my daughter had to have 2 days worth of antibiotics as a precaution, which helped me rest well.

Staff especially the care support workers were fantastic at helping me getting to grips with breast feeding and made me feel more confident in doing so!

Overall I would happily have any future children at this trust
