I would like to acknowledge the incredible care that was given to me by one particular midwife, Leanne, in the postnatal ward following the birth of my son. This was a difficult time for me post a 2 day induction and emergency c section, coupled with my baby being in the neonatal unit after his birth. Leanne was extremely kind and provided me with great care. She helped me hand express collostrum for my baby in the unit which took much time from her schedule yet was very important to me. She listened and responded to all my requested needs despite the busy-ness of the ward. Leanne explained a number of things to me which was reassuring and I felt comfortable asking questions about my recovery and my baby. She was very knowledgeable. She really stands out during my stay in Holles Street and helped me to be in a better position to care for my baby. I'm so grateful to her and would love for her to know what a difference she made to my experience and my physical and mental health. I was so grateful for the compassion she showed as a midwife and hope that she never loses that as a midwife. Thank you Leanne.
I just wanted to compliment the lovely staff at NMH. I phoned triage on Sunday evening as I felt I had been having reduced movements. I spoke to the midwife Nicola on the phone who was so nice and told me to come in and they would check me out. Everyone I met from the gentleman at reception to the lady in admissions to the midwifes Nicola and Marie and Dr Mary were so lovely and helpful and reassuring and never made me feel silly for having been worried.
I really want to say thank you for being so kind and for seeing me so quickly and putting my mind at rest.
