I visited Glasgow for a christening and went into labour at 25 weeks with my twins. I was admitted to ward 23 at Wishaw hospital and was put straight into a side room. The staff allowed my husband to stay with me as we were from England and in a strange environment. The staff were absolutely amazing especially my midwife Gayle, who I certainly want to give special thanks to.
All the staff were very caring and made us feel that all their attention was on us even through I know they were busy. I was in labour a week and had my twins by emergency c-section at 26 weeks. They were transferred straight to the Neo natal unit and due to the amazing and very attentive staff there, they saved my sons life. They recognised very early that he had NEC and he was transferred straight to Yorkhill children's hospital were he was treated with antibiotics. My little girl thrived and did amazingly. They were both transferred home after 5 weeks to our local hospital. We wished they could have stayed in Wishaw hospital as the care at our local hospital was poor in comparison.
My twins are now 21 months and doing amazingly, no one can believe they were premature and I honestly believe it is due to the brilliant staff at ward 23 and the Neo natal unit. Thank you.
