What I liked
I was a patient in Maternity Unit. The Unit was clean, and the food was quite good. Some Midwifes were fantastic, and the health Care Assistants. More, the Labour ward personel were fantastic, althought they told me to walk all the way from Ante-natal Ward to labour ward with the contractions every 2 minutes.But never mind. Baby care fantastic! That's what counts most.
What could be improved
Post-nataly the care was very mixed. Some sifts of Midwifes were great, and some horrible, leading me to cry, as they would put pressure on me with breastfeeding and making decissions. Still have bad memories of that experience. Will think about going back to have second baby.
Personal experience though does not mean the care to other patients will be the same. Have some friend who really liked that hospital, and had great experience. So after all I would recommend it to others, as the Baby care is really good.
