“I would like to single out a midwife at East Surrey Hospital in Redhill, Surrey. The care, compassion, kindness and professionalism shown to my wife and I, and then to our newly born son, was first class. (She) is a credit to her profession and a lovely person. Her care made the birth of a son a very special event and something we will never forget.”
