Our son was presenting as breech at 37 weeks, all the staff throughout the pregnancy kept us well informed and gave us all the information and advice so we felt we could make all the right decisions, an ecv was attempted but unsuccessful so we decided that a c-section was the safest option for delivery. My wife had several concerns, however all the staff were very reassuring and the operation itself was amazing, so calm and relaxed we even brought a CD for them to play in theatre whilst it happened, every member of staff; support staff, midwives, aneathesists, obstetricians, surgeons, all made us feel as though we were their absolute priority, and reassured us throughout. The after care we received was incredible too, if anyone else is concerned about having a c-section I would say Nottingham city hospital certainly do their best to make it feel as comfortable as possible, we definitely felt we were in good hands
