"Fantastic midwifery team who worked well under..."

About: The Great Western Hospital

What I liked

The midwives who I encountered in induction, the white horse birthing centre, the delivery suite and in the post natal ward were all fantastic. They worked tirelessly to try and provide the best possible service while under considerable pressure-at the time that I needed to be moved to delivery there were no rooms, they reassured us and did their best to sort it out as quickly as possible. The team who cared for me post birth when I required surgery were also brilliant and were reasurring during what was quite a stressful time.

What could be improved

Capacity! The delivery team were rushed off their feet for the majority of the time we were there with limited rooms available and difficulties moving people through to the post natal ward as it was also full.

Anything else?

Thank you for the safe delivery of my beautiful daughter!
