"labour ward"

About: Kettering General Hospital

I called up labour ward 18th november 2015 for advise on some signs and symptoms i was presenting. the midwife was friendly and told me to head up to labour ward. this is my 1st baby, so this was all new to me. i had my partner with me and it was all secure with a buzzer to buzz in the ward and to sign in any visitors. i was not judged or treated badly. i was nervous when i had an internal done but the midwife put me at ease and now i feel a bit more comfortable if i do need an internal next time round.

i was discharged the same day and told me any concerns to call as thats what they are here for i would defiantly recommend
