"Amazing midwife care"

About: Chippenham Community Hospital / Trauma and orthopaedics

I am 15 weeks pregnant with my first baby and as you first time mums will know it can be scary at times. During this first trimester I had an early bleed which was addressed and I was able to see the baby who had a strong heartbeat. Coming into my second trimester I had another bleed and this worried me very much. I visited Chippenham antenatal clinic for a routine midwife appointment this week. This is the second time I have seen them and they have been wonderful on both occasions. They make you feel so at ease and has a great way of explaining things which may be difficult to understand. After having a pretty rough week with the bleed, feeling anxious and upset they made me feel so much better. They closely listened in and found our babies heartbeat which was an incredible relief and she spent a while taking me through the many things that could have happened to cause this bleeding. I would strongly recommend them as a midwife because they are so fantastic. They are such a people person and has a very kind and caring nature and that is all you need in your midwife. I have been so impressed and I wanted people to know what a great experience I have had at Chippenham antenatal department. All the staff have been so great and always very helpful! I highly recommend this department for this experience.
