I had my baby at Aberdeen maternity midwives unit in January 2016.
The care I received in the midwives unit was excellent. I felt well cared for and supported.
I then went to the ward and felt that it was short staffed and the midwives did not have the time to care for patients the way they would have wanted. I didn't want to bother them as I could see they were overstretched and so felt a little unsupported though I'm sure if I had asked for help I would have gotten it. I was in a tiny bed space and the wards are overpacked too.
Breast feeding needs more support too.
Over all it was clean everywhere and staff were friendly and caring. More staff and bigger wards are obviously needed though.
Well done staff of Aberdeen maternity hospital.
