"traumatic birth"

About: Royal Stoke University Hospital

Anything else?

I would just like to say thankyou to all the staff involved in mine and my daughters care! On the 25th January I was taken via ambulance to the MAU where I was found to be dialated. So was transferred to the delivery suite! I was allocated a midwife (who's name escapes me) who was wonderful! After my labour went downhill the midwife stayed with us to make sure we were ok, as did the anethetist who's shifts had finshed! I can't thank the doctors, nurses, surgeons, neonatal enough for everything they did for us! If they hadn't battled for us one or both of us would of died that morning (26th Jan 2013). Thankyou to the staff on the ward who helped me after my section, who was wonderful, and the nurse who was my daughters nurse on NICU. Is there anyway that I can find out the midwifes name who stayed with me all night?? And the doctor that helped save my daughters life?? I would really like to say thankyou personally if possible! I didn't have the option to put I visited Maternity in the drop down list
