"PAU were fantastic"

About: University Hospital Of North Durham

I rang the PAU this morning as I was concerned that I hadn't felt my baby move for a while. The person on the phone was really friendly and told me to go straight to the unit, which I did. I was seen really quickly by a lovely midwife who really put me at ease. They found my baby's heartbeat and gave me reasons as to why I might not have felt her move. The midwife really reassured me and most importantly made me feel like I wasn't wasting anyone's time. They said they were there 24/7 if I should have any more concerns. Im really grateful for everything that was done this morning, thankyou.
