"2nd successful home birth!"

About: Hillingdon Hospital

Anything else?

I gave birth to my second son at home on 02/11/13 under the wonderful Hillingdon home birth team. The care I received before and after the birth was fantastic and the delivery itself was another wonderful experience! It was a shame in the end I needed to go into hospital for a 3rd degree tear ... But the transfer was very smooth and the midwives stayed with me till I was under the care of hospital staff. I had a home birth for my 1st son and would recommend it to even new mums!
