I had a traumatic, and horrendous birthing experience at this hospital. When I was finally able to get a copy of my patient records, I saw the records reflected a very different reality than what actually happened. For example there was notes of places, I was never taken, Diagnostic notes for a test I know was impossible, there was a doctor who I know I did not speak with. 6 years later, some of the notes on a diagnostic were changed. It was a very very suspicious experience of a coverup for malpractice. My advise to anyone birthing at this hospital is take your camera and video everything that happens to you. You may be very thankful for your own accurate records if heaven forbid, a medical oversight occurs and you need to get someone to believe your version of what happened!

I was registered to give birth to my son at BC Womens in late 2010, and the staff who helped with my labour and delivery were patient, knowledgeable, and kind. I was asked about my preferences every step of the way, and was given all the information I needed to make informed decisions on my own without feeling any pressure to do anything I wasn't comfortable with. My son required hospitalization while treating and monitoring his jaundice after he was born. We stayed for 3 days and nights at BC Women's, and we never ceased to feel that we were getting the best care available, along with the best bedside manner from all medical and support staff. I would highly recommend BC Women's Hospital and look forward to supporting them through annual donations in our son's name.
