What I liked
What could be improved
I have issues with the receptionist which i will be addressing in writing.
I went into southmead to have my 2nd child at the end of feb 2012, i was seen very quickly by a fabulous midwife who picked up an issue that ultimately saved my childs life. I was rushed to theatre and still cannot believe how calm and professional every member of the team were despite the urgency of the situation- in fact we didnt realise till afterwards just have serious it was.
I was supported in recovery extremely well and transferred into a single room on the Mendip ward as it was close to NICU and my daughter needed to go there twice a day.
The staff on Mendip from Health Assistants to Consultants were brilliant i felt really well looked after. Even the food was pretty good!!
I will always be extremely grateful to the maternity staff for their quick actions.
I think it should also be mentioned that my community midwives and student midwife were fantastic with me after I was discharged and i am seriously impressed with the level of breastfeeding support i have received both from them and the Infant feeding specialist at southmead.
