"i had a fantastic experience in this hospital"

About: Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother Hospital

What I liked

i liked absolutely everything and i'm really happy i decided to give birth in margate hospital as all of my friends who recently gave birth went to ashford and none of them was treated well there.

What could be improved


Anything else?

thanks to a wonderful midwife. i manage to give birth without any pain relief and i enjoyed it.it only lasted an hour and the midwife was great and gave me lots of support and kept me calm. she also kept me informed about everything what was happening and how much of baby's head she can see and what is the colour of his hair. so i was concentrating on the baby not on the pain.for stiching i recommend to all the mums to try the gas and air. i really didn't feel any pain.

i also would like to say big thank you to SCBU where my little boy spent a week, because of a chest infection. all the nurses there are wonderful and i'm very thankful that they looked after my little boy so well and also i would like to thank them for all the support, advice and help i got from them for the last two days which i spent in SCBU with my baby. the room where i stayed with my baby was absolutely spotless thanks to a wonderful lady who cleaned it every day.

i can't complain about anything, because everything was perfect. thanks to all the wonderful staff (midwifes, nurses, doctors, cleaners, lady's who were bringing us food and hot drinks = i recieved a better care than in 5*hotel)
