My youngest DC has just turned 1. I had a pretty massive pph when I gave birth. I didn't get around to proper thank yous at the time but thought I could send a card with a pic of her now, a note and a gift. Any ideas what might be appropriate? I think I had the whole shift in the room at one point (it certainly felt like it!)

A card and maybe a fruit basket. They other loads of chocolate. So fruit always goes down well.

A card will do just nicely, especially if you can remember names of anyone who looked after you. Most units will display cards for a while, and most cards are also pointed out to higher management as a way of showing that the staff are doing a good job.

If you can put individual names in, it'll also help the staff with their revaluation, which they have to do every 3 years - staff have to give feedback from patients they've cared for as part of proving their fitness to practice.

Personally, the fact that someone has taken time to write and send a card means a lot, and a card will last far longer than a box of chocs or some cake.

If you do decide to send in a gift, food gifts always go down well - I've known trays of homemade samosas, home baked cake, crispy creme boxes, fruit baskets, and even a dominoes voucher which was used to get pizza delivered for a staff meeting - all greatly appreciated.

Hmm savouries or fruit or healthier snacks are a good idea. I don't remember names unfortunately (aside from the midwife who delivered the baby).

Send a letter to the chief executive of the hospital telling them that the whole team was amazing, and asking them to thank them.
