"Maternity ward nsech"

About: Northumbria Specialist Emergency Care Hospital Wansbeck Hospital / Maternity care

(as the patient),

I recently had my baby at nsech and after having many visits throughout my pregnancy and being very anxious the care I had was outstanding. I ended up having an emergency c section which terrified me but every member of staff I met went above and beyond to help me. I couldn't of asked for a better midwife who had the patience of a saint and made me feel so at ease. I would definitely recommend this hospital.
