"Midwifery Group Practice at King Edward Memorial Hospital"

About: King Edward Memorial Hospital / Community Midwifery Program King Edward Memorial Hospital / Maternity

(as a service user),

Wonderful experience from start to finish.

The service was delivered by a primary midwife and some of her team colleagues as ‘buddies.’ Throughout the antenatal period there was a high level of knowledge, expertise and personalised care offered to me and during the delivery of my baby boy.

I was listened to and guided through the process by my primary midwife with excellent skill, deep wisdom, empathy and compassion.

The great care continued after my baby boy was delivered, with the primary midwife and some of her colleagues completing the home visits to ensure that post-birth both my baby and I, and the rest of the family, were recovering well.

I feel extremely lucky to have had such a positive antenatal, birth and postnatal experience. I would recommend the MGP5 service and the King Edward Memorial Hospital midwifery service more generally to every woman.

Dear Positive Birth Experience,

Congratulations on the birth of your new baby. Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback regarding your experience with the Women and Newborn Health Service (WNHS).

I am so pleased to hear that you had a positive experience with our Midwifery Group Practice (MGP5) model of care, and it is lovely to hear that you received the care and continuity you needed to support you through your pregnancy and the birth of your baby.

WNHS is incredibly proud of the maternity care that is provided by our staff and the way they work with our patients to achieve positive outcomes during the pregnancy and birthing journey.

It is great to hear that you received the same level of support during your recovery at home.

Once again, thank you for providing us with this great feedback. I wish you and your family all the best for the future.


Jodi Graham
