An emergency section was carried at the birth of my daughter.
I was impressed by the professionalism and compassion of the labour ward staff at Tameside hospital. The doctor who carried out the section was very apologetic about a tiny nick on Ellie's face, but the fact is that without surgical intervention our daughter would not have survived the birth.
I realise that these procedures are routine, but that doesn't lessen the sense of gratitude and thanks that we owe to these life savers.
Tameside hospital has received plenty of bad press over the years, but in our experience we have nothing but praise for the dedicated people who work there.
