"Midwifery Led Unit"

About: North Tyneside General Hospital

Anything else?

I just wanted to write a short review so other soon to be Mums can have an insight into my experience of having both my babies delivered here. The care and support I have received from the midwives and Health Care Assistants in the unit has been outstanding. I was treated with dignity and respect and they made me feel completely at ease in the surroundings. Not only did they care for me they looked after my partner and of course safely delivered both of my children. I had a midwife present throughout my entire labour both times which was reassuring and special to share that experience with a dedicated professional. My birth this weekend was magical and the use of the birthing pool an incredible experience. Totally recommend this if you have a low risk pregnancy.
