"Great support for birth of my second child"

About: Southern General Hospital / Maternity care

(as the patient),

I gave birth to my second child at the Southern General hospital.

I was induced after my waters broke at home, but no natural contractions. I had a fantastic support, a great Midwife and really caring student Midwife on the unit.

Once again please accept my thanks for sending us these comments. Staff involved in caring for you will be delighted that you appreciated the care provided to you. I hope that you and your baby are thriving, and wish you both well in the future.
