"Medical staff were great, easy to talk..."

About: Eastbourne District General Hospital

What I liked

Midwives were nice and the obstetrician was fantastic.

What could be improved

Food was dreadful, mushy and salty or dry and tasteless.

After being in labour from 8am till 11.30pm I was only offered a dry piece of cold toast - which I couldn't eat because I was too dry mouthed. However all was not lost as my partner had brought food in the labour bag - which I recommend everyone bring.
