"Oakwood Midwives - absolutely ..."

About: King's College Hospital (Denmark Hill)

(as the patient),

What I liked

Oakwood Midwives - absolutely fantastic.

1:1 support from the same midwives throughout not just one pregnancy and delivery, but for both my children.

The midwives build your confidence by providing excellent information and moral support and enable you to make all the decisions yourself. They also act as your advocate with the wider medical team as appropriate.

I had exactly the births I wanted with my two children - both born at home in a pool - and these amazing experiences will last my lifetime.

Excellent support after the birth with breastfeeding and emotional support too.

What could be improved

I would just like every woman to have the opportunity to have the same excellent care as I did - more Oakwood Midwives!
