Thanks to the Whittington for our son’s precious life

• ON December 4, shortly before 4pm, our son was delivered by emergency C-section at the Whittington Hospital.

We have no doubt that Rowan’s precious life was preserved by the skill, experience, training and dedication displayed by the team of more than a dozen medics, who streamed into theatre as the alert sounded.

Obstetricians, anaesthetists, surgeons and paediatricians went out of their way to comfort us, while delivering their clinical duties.

The incredible midwives Flo and Claire cared for us with unwavering compassion throughout the tumultuous day.

Thank you to all the staff of the Whittington’s labour ward and maternity triage. And thank you to those who fight to keep our NHS public.
