"Fantastic care from maternity services"

About: Queen's Medical Centre / Maternity care

(as the patient),

Fantastic care both antenatally and during delivery from the professional and caring team at NUH. My antenatal midwife Hannah was kind, caring and approachable. I had a straightforward pregnancy but I always felt I had enough time to ask her anything.

The two teams of midwives during labour were fantastic. I was treated with respect and care during the whole labour. I was particularly impressed by how personal the midwives made the experience.

Both midwives had a student with them and they were both incredible. Very reassuring to know that if I have another baby in future years the next generation of midwives coming through will be of such a high standard. Midwife during delivery was Georgia and her student Leesa. Thank you.

Congratulations on the birth of your first baby! I have shared this with the staff who you mention were involved in your care, including Hannah, Georgia and Leesa. We have a great team of midwives at NUH and some wonderful students. Early 2017 we will open nominations for Nurse and Midwife of the Year (we work in partnership with the Nottingham Post on this). You may wish to consider making a nomination! Watch out on Twitter and via our website for how to nominate.

We wish you, your family and your baby well.
