What I liked
I was in the maternity section and labour ward.I was supposed to have my child at lgi but was full so had to go here while in labour. I was straight in a room by myself with a midwife with me most the time.I was told what was happening and going to happen at all times as wasn't at Pontefract where had previous child.The midwife was recently qualified and anything they were not sure of they asked someone else, they put me at ease and i had a wonderful experience mainly because of her and staff that assisted.I can t remember their name but i would like them to get a big thank you! When in labour at a scary time a good midwife makes all the difference. I had to stay in as blood presure was high and all nurses and midwifes i came across were so caring and helpful.
All staff were great top marks to st james,maternity section
What could be improved
If i had another child i would like to be here again and not to my local hospital.
