About: Macclesfield District General Hospital

What I liked

From the minute I was admitted in labour to when we left to go home with our perfect baby boy we found the level of care, compassion and expertise of all the maternity unit staff to be of the highest standard. I work in an NHS hospital and I have never experienced a team of nurses, midwives and care assistants that work so well together, were so knowledgeable and skilled in their field and at the same time were so genuinely warm and interested in me and my baby as individuals and not just a patient. I felt so safe and secure in the care I was getting at all times even though it was my first baby. Once the baby was born I was given just enough space to figure things out for myself but also knew that help and advice wasn't far when I needed it. We were well informed throughout at each stage of the delivery process and afterwards.

The domestic staff were also so lovely and kind. The food was of a very high standard. The facilities were excellent, particularly the birthing room.

All in all my experience of having our first baby at Macclesfield was extremely positive and we are so grateful to all the staff in the Maternity Unit.
