I just wanted to send in a brief note to commend one of the colposcopy nurses in the clinic in Holles Street - Lisa. She couldn't have been nicer! She was warm, supportive and had such a positive bedside manner. Even though I had some awareness of what my procedure would entail, Lisa explained everything she was doing in terms I could understand. For so many women, going into Colposcopy is understandably very daunting- but Lisa had such a wonderful manner, it really helped put me at ease. I just would like to say thank you to her for making a stressful experience so much easier to manage.
I am not one to usually write feedbacks, but it has been a long time coming and I feel it is well deserved. I will never forget my experience giving birth in NMH. I was scared as it was my first pregnancy with my husband and no family around. I came into the hospital and I was taken to the ward to await my labour. I forgot the midwifes name in there but she was so kind and gentle, when you are in pain and scared and anxious every gesture that is empathetic leaves a mark behind, once I was in the labour room awaiting my delivery, Eleanor, a lovely midwife who birthed my son was just truly God sent, she was so understanding although I was anxious and through-out the couple of hours she was with me she was the best, as this was my first experience I was very nervous and scared but she made the delivery process a memorable one in the loveliest way possible. As I got wheeled into the post delivery room, a midwife called Avril dealt with me, she also was great, I applaud her for her bedside manners. She constantly was helping me latch my baby to my breast. I am forever grateful for these midwives. Please give them my sincerest gratitude and pat their backs because they are doing a phenomenal job. I look back fondly to every step of what I went through even as a public patient. I just want to show my appreciation to the pre-labour, L&D midwives for doing such a fantastic job not just by using their skill set but by having the best bedside manners. For always having a smile on their faces. I am beyond appreciative! Your staff are wonderful! I don’t know if they will remember me but please thank Eleanor and Avril for me once again.
We started to 'try' for another child over 2 years ago. Sadly, we had 5 miscarriages. Without the support of Sarah and Brenda the bereavement midwives my mental health would have crumbled. The service they offer gives hope, compassion and a listening ear when you feel you will never achieve the goal of another child. The recurrent miscarriage clinic, where Dr Cathy Allen is so skilled and professional and reassuring, gave me the will to try again after my 5th miscarriage.
The scanning department where every week my glimmer of hope got stronger, Valerie deserves a special mention as she is amazing! Mary-Lou your lovely receptionist in the ultrasound department that has been with me through tears of joy and utter despair.
If my story can help anyone to have hope please tell them that sometimes it takes a while but you get your rainbow baby one day and when you do it makes up for all the sadness.
So thank you Holles Street. I will forever be grateful that we were in your care.
