About: Stafford Hospital

What I liked

The midwives were wonderful. Every aspect of giving birth was wonderful & I was well looked after. Everyone was friendly & took time to make me feel good & answered any questions I asked nicely. The food was good and I never felt rushed or hurried to vacate the delivery suite, which was lovely, scatter cushions and gentle lighting made it cosy and my midwife even brought me battery operated tealight candles to calm me and create a peaceful atmosphere. My birth plan was read and understood and acted upon as best as could be. I was very impressed by how attentive my midwife was to my birth plan! Well done everyone, I cant thank you enough & look forward to my next baby already! xx

What could be improved

The water birthing pool was broken which I would have liked to have used if possible. Unfortunately there was only one pool, this could be improved upon.
