"I gave birth to my 1st child on ..."

About: Watford General Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked

I gave birth to my 1st child on the ABC unit within the Maternity Wing. I cannot fault the care i received or the facilites avaliable, midwives who cared for me & my son, the doctor who checked my son or the hygiene of my room and the unit in general.

The ABC unit is an example of how good the NHS can be. I just hope I am able to labour & birth on the ABC with my next child.

What could be improved

only a very small thing - I was missed out of the breakfast run. I'd given birth at 2am and by 7/8am was starving and breakfast would have been wonderful!
