"Very happy and satisfied with the services..."

About: King's College Hospital (Denmark Hill)

Anything else?

KCH has helped me through my difficult and happy times. A year and half ago I had a stillbirth. The midwives and consultants were very sympathetic and gave me the best possible service they could. Midwives were very caring and held my hand all the way to the extent that they brought me through to the back door of the post natal ward knowing that the cries of the babies in the ward would make me sad. I was given a private en suite private room so I won't be asked about my situation. Two months ago, I gave birth to a healthy baby girl. I was diagnosed with polyhydroamnios by the doctor. Since she was concerned about cord prolapse she checked me in immediately to ante natal ward. I stayed in this ward for 11 days until I was at week 38.6 before I went for my ceasarean section for the safety of the baby given this condition. My baby and I are all ok this time. Midwives and doctors were all very attentive and caring throughout my stay at the ante and post natal ward. It has been a long journey for me but I was always made informed about my condition and medication. I feel very comfortable being treated by medical staff at kings. I am indebted to the kindness of everyone who has taken care of me at Kings. Big thank you!

Thank you for sharing your experiences in our obstetric services. Congratulations on the recent birth of your daughter. I will of course pass on your thanks for both episodes of care and I am very pleased to hear that during both, although in very differing circumstances the staff were able to offer you a very high standard of care and support.
