"Boxing Day baby"

About: John Radcliffe Hospital

The midwives in the delivery suit were absolutely brilliant and helped me with my long and complicated birth of our baby girl. It was a natural birth but was not easy. They are very pacient and caring and I wouldn't of been able to get through it without them! They do a brilliant job and my heart goes out to them all! A special thank you to certain midwives, thank you for helping me deliver my baby and holding my hand when it got really tough.x
