"maternity department"

About: Whipps Cross University Hospital

The care and attention I received by the midwives in the lilac unit of the maternity ward was fantastic. The birth of my baby boy went exactly to plan and I was able to have the water birth I wished for. The staff made me feel calm, in control and well supported. I was particularly impressed with the knowledge and professionalism of all the staff.

Dear Tamara

Wow! Thank you for awarding Lilac Unit with five stars. Congratulations on the birth of your son. It is fantastic to hear that you were able to have the birth you planned for and that the staff in the Unit made you feel calm and in control. This is what they aim to achieve.

Your kind words have been passed over to the team in the unit.
