When is my baby due?

I gave birth to a baby boy by emergency section under a general anaesthetic. The doctor on duty was Dr Grace Ryan and amazingly she came to check on me every day after the delivery to answer my questions and to see how I was doing. I am very grateful for that. The midwives in the ward post-delivery were fantastic. I was provided with a physio consultation and a meeting with the mental health support services and both were very useful. I was on the early transfer programme and had very helpful visits from nurses on discharge which helped a lot with breast feeding and everything else. I would like to thank all of the incredible staff who work so hard and are so patient and caring.
My baby is now 6 weeks old and I would like to say a massive thank you to NMH for overall experience of the hospital, from being admitted to giving birth to leaving to go home. Especially want to mention midwife Nicola Kelly who delivered my baby. She was so encouraging and helpful and made the whole birthing experience comfortable and something nice to look back on. Also Jo was very helpful and friendly and kind. And Fiona who met me a few times throughout and was lovely. I only have positive things to say about the hospital and all the staff I dealt with. Thanks
From the moment I set foot in the hospital, I received nothing but wonderful care! I moved through different departments, as I attempted to have a VBAC at first, but ultimately had to have a section. Everyone I that I met along this journey was so supportive and attentive! The team in the operating room were a group of good fairy godmothers that took better care of me than my own mother and husband! I felt safe and that my baby was safe and that nothing bad can ever happen to us. They need to know they made such big difference in the lives of our young family. I ended up having a great birth experience and hospital stay!
II just wanted to mention the amazing care I received from Helen and Louise during these three days after giving birth. Both of them were incredible. Helen Clare was very thorough with her work, she always tried to get to the bottom of things and didn't hesitate to get a second opinion or the help of a specialist if need be. She was very kind and cheerful. Louise was equally outstanding. She was extremely kind and attentive to everyone's needs. I am extremely grateful to both of them for making my stay in Holles Street so much better in these tough circumstances and hope that their incredible work and dedication is known and recognised.
