I would recommend Wansbeck Maternity dept

I gave birth to my first child, a baby girl, on in September 2011 at Wansbeck General Hospital.

I was initially due to give birth at north tyneside general, but went 2 weeks over my due date so had to be induced. I chose wansbeck and was quite nervous as i hadn’t looked around there and didnt know much about it.

As soon as I arrived I was put at ease by the student midwife on duty (Kerry) and the midwife looking after me (Vicky) – they were lovely and I had my own en suite room throughout the induction process which i hadn’t been expecting.

The midwife looking after me on day shift (Carole) was lovely too, she even spent time chatting with me to put me at ease as the first part of induction was moving slowly for me.

The team as a whole were excellent including the staff on the postnatal ward (ward 11) -they were very experienced and gave me a lot of their time and didnt miss a thing. They also showed genuine care and compassion for our wellbeing as mum and child.

I would recommend wansbeck maternity and will be booking myself in there for baby no. 2 – whenever that will be!
