Details of experience

We were delighted with the care we received from the MATU, birth suite and postnatal ward staff. After birthing, I experienced a PPH which was handled well by the midwives. My husband was informed of everything happening at all stages and felt he could question any procedures that he didn't fully understand. The midwives also supported my husband in caring for our newborn while I could not.
The only downside was when the changeover occurred, and the two doctors disagreed quite loudly about taking me to the theatre (my husband told me this afterwards).
