"Delayed premature labour at Bunbury Regional Hospital"

About: Bunbury Hospital

(as the patient),

Recently, I was admitted to the maternity ward in Bunbury after prematurely rupturing my membranes at 25 weeks pregnant. Midwives Rosita and Jackie were calm and reassuring while very quickly getting into action. Helping me through contractions whilst trying to put a stop to such an early labour, looking after both bub, myself and my spouse.

Their quick actions essentially helped me get to King Edward Memorial Hospital to be in the best place for me and bub. Their persistence to get me on a Royal Flying Doctor Service was essential. Though it was not easy, their ability to identify and escalate the situation does not go unnoticed. Myself and my spouse are incredibly grateful for the care, support and sense of urgency that these ladies gave, we cannot speak highly enough of how the situation was handled.

Dear runningjq49,

Thank you for taking the time to post to Patient Opinion at what I know must be a very challenging time for you and your family. I have forwarded on your feedback to both Jackie and Rosita, they will both be humbled by your comments. We have an amazing team at Bunbury, and although the circumstances were not the best, I am very pleased that they were able to provide you with both the emotional and clinical support that you, your partner and your baby required.

We all wish you and your baby the best for the future.

Thank you, with kind regards

Katrina Jones
