hi ladies, I have seen a couple posts from 2007 with a similar headline but now being in 2020 I would like to know any experiences for those who have birthed in QC or C&W in the last couple of years. I need to make a decision between the 2 soon. Distance wise I am inbetween both. I would really appreciate any help - first time (hopefully) mum xx
I can't speak from my own experience but my friend had her baby at Chelsea in May and she said only yesterday that she wouldn't go back. Staff were all lovely, but very short staffed, very strict Covid rules and discharged her baby too early (was rushed into A&E only a few hours after being sent home). But bare in mind this was May though, at the height of lockdown (and just one person's experience).
I’m currently at C&W and think they’ve been great. 31 weeks so haven’t yet given birth but they’ve been really accommodating if needing extra scans, reduced movement, etc. I was at QC during a diff pregnancy that sadly ended in TFMR and felt like everything was a fight - even to schedule in the actual termination!
In speaking with others it actually sounds like CWs COVID policies are actually not bad. Partners can come to scans and are allowed in for 3 hours after birth plus visiting hours 8am-8pm.
