"Baby weighing"

About: William Harvey Hospital

When my baby was born a midwife weighed my baby girl and she weighed 3.15 kg we was told 7lb11oz and she was weighed yesterday she had put on 400g but was 7lb9oz which made no sense so this midwife has got is massively wrong and I am not happy as we were told false information and believing she was 7lb11oz this has really upset me and my family I am disgusted with this hospital avoid it as much as possible

Response from Sally Smith, Chief Nurse and Director Of Quality, East Kent Hospitals University NHS Foundation Trust

I am so sorry to hear about the different weights you were told. This must have been very concerning. Please accept my apologies for this.

I would like to congratulate you on the birth of your baby and do hope all is now going very well for you both.
