I’ve had all 3 of mine at the maternity unit in Harlow and I can’t fault them they was fantastic
Had all 5 of mine at pah and was always treated well and with respect, the midwives there are absolutely amazing 😍
Gorgeous babies ❤️
Agree with everyone, both our 2yr old and 4yr old were born at PAH Maternity and everyone there was so good, professional, fun and very helpful to both my wife and I-can’t thank them enough for all they do-should be so proud, makes PAH stand out from everywhere else! Special Thankyou to NICU for the week my 4yr old spent there with the highest jaundice they have ever seen, off the scale and even though we live walking distance, allowed is to have one of the rooms adjoining NICU!
I had my baby boy Was born 20/12/2021 The staff were amazing and I can’t thank them enough for looking after myself and my baby
