I had my twins recently and I had such a wonderful birth experience at your hospital it outweighed my expectations. I felt compelled to write and tell you about the excellent care I received. I suppose I had it in the back of my mind that it was very possible I would need some sort of intervention at some stage during labour or delivery so getting my “perfect” birth scenario has been utterly life-changing for me as a woman and a mother. Being able to have Jen (doula) accompany us through my labour and delivery meant so much to us and I must thank you from the bottom of our hearts for allowing this to happen. The extra support for me and my partner was extraordinary in helping me remain calm and focused and kept me believing that I was able to do it even at the peak of intensity when doubt crept in to my mind. I also have to comment on an absolutely fantastic team of midwives and doctors who helped me deliver the twins. I was able to remain active and on my feet up until the pushing phase, which I never expected. The team were so calming and in control that I didn’t have a worry in the world.It was just an indescribable experience that will stay with me for the rest of my life and again I must thank you for facilitating our requests at such short notice.Thank you again so very much we will be eternally grateful
My beautiful son was delivered in November and we had the most amazing Midwife, Alison Hickey. From the moment we arrived into the Hospital and Alison was assigned to me and my wife as I had gone into labour. The whole experience was amazing for us and I truly believe this was down to Alison making us feel so comfortable. I had a difficult time after delivery, and was taken to surgery but Alison stayed with my wife and our son, again making her feel so at ease. Another midwife passed a comment on why my wife should have to be shown how to look after a baby as she is a woman, but Alison again just made everything calm. I strongly feel that midwives in this country don’t get enough recognition, and I really hope that this gets passed onto the relevant managers and to Alison herself. Hopefully in the future we will cross paths again, as I wouldn’t want anyone else there delivering our baby, it's such a special moment in our lives and we are glad it was Alison that brought him into the world. She is truly one of a kind, and we hope she gets the recognition she deserves.
I just wanted to say that I am very grateful for the care myself and my husband received.. I felt very cared for and looked after. It was my first time in the hospital as all of my appointments have been in the consultant’s room so far. The care was very prompt and thorough. Nurse Sheeba, Nurse Christina and Dr. Maria were amazing. Thanks to all. Lorna and Ronan
