Dr Jenny Walsh provided the highest standard of consistent care, consideration and was a wealth of knowledge which was a great reassurance to me and my partner. She gave the time I needed to listen to my concerns, answer my questions and advocate for me and my preferred birth plan. I trusted her clinical judgment, which was never forced but offered respectfully, giving me agency and the power to make my own decisions. I'm very grateful to her for contributing to a really empowering and positive pregnancy and birthing experience. It helped that she was simply lovely, warm and kind in all interactions, despite how in demand she seemed to be.
I attended the Emergency Department with complications of a miscarriage. Throughout my whole journey there, I experienced immense kindness and compassion in addition to professionalism and exemplary medical care. From the receptionist to the lady in admissions, the 2 amazing nurses in ED - Aoise and Chris, the SpR Sarah O'Riordan, the porter, the staff nurse on the ward, the sonographer, the consultant Donal O'Brien, the anaesthetic consultant, the theatre and recovery nurses and the nurse Orla caring for me that day... I am sorry I can't remember all the names but each one of them made my loss that little bit easier and gave me great comfort. As a healthcare professional myself, I am inspired by their compassion and reminded of what a big difference it can make to someone's suffering. I am forever grateful for the efficiency, hard work and kindness I experienced in the few hours I was there.
My partner was admitted in April to be induced and from when she was admitted to being discharged every member of staff we encountered were absolutely fantastic. From the lads on the front desk to the amazing midwife (Michelle) who delivered our daughter we genuinely could not say a bad word about anyone. Everyone was so kind and helpful all of the time and even though all the midwives were under a lot of pressure with everything going on they handled it extremely well and made it look so easy. In the ward where my partner was first admitted there was Carla, Emma, Attractia, Hannah. The delivery ward was Michelle and Laura and the postnatal ward was Chloe and Ciara. Our experience in the hospital was amazing and all the staff are a credit to Holles St and the HSE. I would also like to especially mention a lovely lady called Maggie who talked to Mairead a few times during the pregnancy scans and went out of her way to find Mairead to congratulate Mairead on the birth of our daughter. Thank you so much to all the staff they are all doing a fantastic job.
Please pass on my thanks and compliments to the teams in NMH this time specifically the Emergency team. After have 4 chemical pregnancies’ I'm finally almost 17 weeks pregnant with our rainbow baby and to say my nerves have been on edge this time around would be an understatement. I had been coping well with the support of the out patient’s clinic however worry over took me as I was in a lot of pain. After hours of putting off going in as I was almost sure it was just stretching pain I finally said that my mind wouldn't stop thinking until I knew baby was ok. As always the support in the hospital was amazing, thank god I had it confirmed it was just stretching pains and baby was doing fine, but I couldn't thank the lovely girl who scanned me enough, she made sure I didn't feel stupid she constantly reassured me I did the right thing and just them few words made me feel so much better. Again as always the work you all do doesn't go unnoticed so from my family to the NMH, Thank you so much.
