Unfortunately my much wanted pregnancy ended in a stillbirth so emotions were/are very high.
The care I received from the staff in the delivery suite helped me cope with the awful position I was in. The midwife who cared for me deserves recognition for the work they do. They kept me focused on the delivery and had the patience of a saint in dealing with me. On top of that they came in on their day off to check on me and ended up delivering my baby.
During my stay I was allowed time with my baby girl and had a meltdown with grief during the night. A midwife stayed with me and helped me dress my baby and took my most treasured photos. Without them I would have no memories of my baby and I would absolutely love to see them again and give them a massive hug.
Thank you also to the member of staff for hunting for cheese at night as it was the only thing that could tempt me to eat.
