"Delivery Suite"

About: Rotherham Hospital

Anything else?

My wife went into labour at 1:30am. We arrived at the delivery suite at 2:15am after being advised to go in immediately. We left later that evening after my wife had given birth at 0825 in the morning. The care throughout was flawless. The team worked well together as a whole-we could not fault anyone. The department was spotlessly clean. All staff were friendly and attentive-they were always on hand at the press of a button and happy to help. We were kept well informed throughout-we were never 'left in the dark' about what was to happen where and when. This is my second experience here at the delivery suite (my wife also gave birth their to our first child together, aswell as her 2nd from a previous relationship). Despite the circumstances and unpleasant nature of childbirth she has felt well cared for and reassured throughout each time she has been there. We would both recommend anyone to make Rotherham Hospital delivery suite their choice when deciding where to deliver their child. We can't thank them enough.
