What I liked
Almost all the staff were calm, open and kind as well as being incredibly proficient at their jobs. I ended up having an emergency caesarean because of pre-eclampsia and they were proffessional and calm all the way through. They involved me and my husband at every step of the way and they saved me and my baby from a very dangerous situation. We felt like we were in really safe hands.
On the maternity ward we were treated with the same care and respect, we were offfered help when we needed it and care and support too.
When we were taken to special care to get an ecg on our baby's heart the registrar and consultant were both fantastic - they let us sit in, they communicated well and compassionately and they never made us feel scared.
Oh and the food was pretty decent I thought!
What could be improved
The odd midwife who showed their stress (not surprising really, they have so much to do but there were others who coped better). And it took a long time to get out once we were ready for home. We discharged ourselves in the end.
I couldn't think of anywhere I'd rather give birth - we were looked after so well.
