"Labour and maternity care"

About: Darlington Memorial Hospital

I recently had my twins and the staff on both the labour ward and maternity ward were fantastic! Nothing was a bother. My stay was a longer than expected stay, but the staff were no nice and friendly my stay was enjoyable. All the staff introduced themselves so I got to know everyone who looked after us. It was almost like the good old days as the staff would come in to talk to us, and I wasn't felt like I was being rushed it was just s number. My stay was that good it was a very emotional goodbye when I had to go home. 😊
