Michelle King

Michelle King, Maternity Midwife, Luton & Dunstable

Michelle is a Midwife in the L&D Maternity team, who was nominated by a patient:

“I met Michelle at the midwife-led unit at the L&D hospital and she stayed with me when I transferred to the consultant-led room. I was in labour with my first baby. I was feeling prepared for the birth, however my birth preferences changed rapidly as the reality of labour hit me.

“Michelle responded with complete sensitivity and support, adapting our plan quickly. As we changed rooms Michelle explained everything really clearly and simply, including the epidural and the monitoring. We also discussed the rationale for having the injection for a managed delivery of the placenta. I was given all the information I needed to decide whether I wanted the injection or not.

“Michelle was really knowledgeable and could answer everything. My husband and I want to thank Michelle from the bottom of our hearts for making us feel at ease and for being such brilliant company.

“We were also happy to see Michelle the next day. It was lovely to see a familiar face, especially as the labour progressed in an unexpected way. We needed comfort and found it in Michelle.”
