"Excellent care in Delivery Suite"

About: Leeds General Infirmary

Wanting to leave high praise for the Delivery Suite at LGI. I was hoping for a Home Birth as I hate hospitals, but a last minute diagnosis meant I had to be induced at LGI. I was so surprised at how calm and comforting the atmosphere was, the staff were gentle, really courteous and the room was clean spacious and there was a lovely lamp that meant I could birth in nice lighting which made a lot of difference. The main midwife was so great very nice, but also clearly very good at their job. There were parts of the labout where the baby appeared to be in distress, I felt the staff were honest and straightforward, but also took the time to reassure me in a very personal way, which really helped me birth him sucessfully. Never thought I would come away with a happy hospital birth story. Well done LGI team!
