"A role model to all birth centres!"

About: St Mary's Hospital (Melton Mowbray)

I have had the privledge of having both of my children at St Mary's. Both my births were of low risk and I was made to feel as comfortable as possible from the start of my labour until I felt I was ready to go home. I stayed a week after birth with my first child and overnight with my 2nd. The staff are encouraging and supportive, the rooms clean and the food is brill. If I had gone somewhere else to have my children I don't think I'd have had the opportunity to experience a water birth which helped me labour my 2nd child and I also wouldn't have got the support I needed to breastfeed. I can't thank the staff at St Mary's enough for the support, knowledge and advise!
