"Maternity care"

About: Sale Hospital / Emergency Department Sale Hospital / Women's and Children's

(as the patient),

I would like to say thank you to the staff in the Medical Imaging, Emergency and Women’s & Children’s ward for the compassionate, professional and timely services they provided to me during my pregnancy and the birth of my baby recently. 

I have had a number of miscarriages so am incredibly grateful to the medical imaging staff for their understanding when I booked in for scans. At the last scan I had before the birth the technician was lovely and told me that she was very happy for me as she had in the past had to give me bad news. I thought that this was so caring as it showed that I was not just a patient.

I had a couple of hiccups through the pregnancy that resulted in me attending the Emergency Department, again all the staff that I dealt with were understanding and helpful even when they were incredibly busy.

Dr Sarkar and the midwives were amazing. Special thanks to Kim, Bekki and Jo. I felt supported and comfortable with them and felt that they respected my wishes and provided exceptional care. I was able to have a positive birth experience and my baby was born healthy.
