"Maternity staff were my angels on earth!"

About: Queen Elizabeth Hospital (Gateshead)

I cannot praise the staff of thr pau, maternity and post natal wards of this hospital enough. I was seen for regular scans thanks to the staff in PAU spotting potential GD when I attended a monitoring session-something my midwife didnt spot!The pau also identified both oc snd pre-eclampsia when I attended for daily monitoring sessions following reduced growth identified on their scans.I was induced early as a result of these complications and the staff in the maternity uni were fantastic. They helped me deliver my baby over 2&1/2 days-it was a complicated delivery to say the least.They were supportive,professional,thorough and most importantly for me kind!The post natal staff were a huge support and helped me to breastfeed even though I hadn't intended to-they cared for me and my baby and offered the support you need after giving birth effortlessly and with dignity. i cannot thank the staff enough of this hospital or rate them enough- I truly believe they ensured the safe delivery of my baby and I have them all to thsnk for both myself and my baby being here today -absolute angels!
