"I am 24 weeks pregnant. I checked ..."

About: Queen Charlotte's Hospital

What I liked

I am 24 weeks pregnant. I checked myself into the maternity unit on the advice of my local midwife, because I was worried that I might be leaking amniotic fluid. I was seen straight away by the midwifery sister, and then shortly afterwards by a doctor who examined me and gave me reassurance that nothing was wrong. A senior doctor then came within ten minutes to give me further explanation and tell me that I could go home. I felt totally reassured and in good hands. The staff were prompt, clear and friendly and I am very grateful to have my mind put at rest. Thank you so much.
