"Fabulous care on the labour ward"
About: Bradford Royal Infirmary Bradford Royal Infirmary Bradford BD9 6RJ
I have just had my first baby at BRI. I had a low risk pregnancy and was planning on having my baby on the birthing centre. Unfortunately my waters broke before going into labour so I had to be induced on the labour ward. To begin with I was upset that it wasn't as planned but as soon as I arrived at the labour ward I was really well looked after. The midwives who cared for me made me feel so safe and I never felt scared. I had a tough labour and needed to have forceps and an episiotomy to get my baby out. The midwives and doctors made sure that I felt safe and reassured me that my baby was okay and he arrived safely. I was poorly after delivery so was kept on the labour ward until I was well enough to be moved to m3 where I stayed for two nights. The care was much better on the labour ward and I asked to go home earlier than I should have so I could recover at home.
