"Midwife made my birthing experience a pleasure"

About: Wexham Park Hospital

I had my baby at Wexham park and although the hospital had a bad reputation I had a great experience.

My waters broke and I started to bleed- this can be a sign something isn't right. The midwife made the whole experience calm but kept me informed, they were professional throughout and I wasn't left alone for a moment. I felt so secure and well looked after. We also had a game to guess sex and weight while we waited. I didn't have to wait for an epidural, the member of staff was right next door. After I delivered, the staff made my mother and husband tea, toast and jam... What kind human beings... They knew it would be well received as everyone was exhausted. The small things make the most difference.

I have now moved and am pregnant with my second, I will be having this baby at Hillingdon, I hope they can live up to my experience at Wexham Park!!
