"Positive feedback to maternity at The Angliss"

About: Angliss Hospital / Maternity

(as the patient),

I gave birth for the first time early this year at The Angliss Hospital and I cannot speak more highly of the midwives, doctors, ward supports, theatre techs and admin staff at this hospital.

Throughout my journey I felt well cared for and safe which I felt was most important.

After labouring all day drug free with the support of my husband and close monitoring from my midwife, when it finally came time to deliver I required forceps as my baby's heart rate dropped and it all became quite urgent to deliver. I then had to go to theatre for stitches and blood loss. The attending registrar was amazing and took control of the situation so professionally and calmly. I felt I was in very good hands. My midwife was also so calm and professional and looked after me every step of the way including staying back that evening.

The care on the ward was fabulous and I feel very thankful for everyone's hard work and wonderful care.

Thank you very much for taking the time to provide such positive feedback. Congratulations on the safe arrival of your first baby. Our clinical staff take great pride in the care they provide, and I will ensure your feedback is provided to the staff in the Woman's and Children's Program.

I trust parenthood is all you expected it to be! The Angliss Hospital has a wonderful tradition of providing care to community members during significant periods in their lives. A first baby certainly fits into that category!

Congratulations again, and my very best wishes.

Ben
