"Giving birth at Box Hill Hospital - Midwife Care"

About: Box Hill Hospital / Maternity Service

(as the patient),

Recently I gave birth to my first born at Box Hill Hospital under midwife care. I had an amazing experience and was supported by two lovely midwives, Kathy and Claire. They were both so respectful of my birth preferences and gave me and my daughter the birth I was truly hoping for. I couldn't be happier, and I am so grateful for their knowledge, support and expertise. I hope that they are acknowledged for their great work!

Dear New Parents from Melbourne,

Thank you so much for providing your feedback on Patient Opinion and I am delighted to hear that you had such a positive experience of the Midwife Care at Box Hill hospital. Having a baby is a very special time, particularly when it is your first and I am very pleased that we have been able to ensure you and your baby had the birth that you were hoping for.

I will make sure to pass your feedback on to Kathy and Claire. It is terrific to be able to acknowledge our staff directly when they have done a great job.

I hope that you are enjoying this special time with your new baby girl.

With kind regards,

Gayle Smith
