"Home Birth Team"

About: Hillingdon Hospital

Having already had a successful home birth three years ago, and receiving excellent service, I decided to opt for a home birth again for my second pregnancy. The set up for home births has changed since my first labour, with the introduction of a dedicated home birth team. I found this to be a wonderful service and had the opportunity to meet all the homebirth midwives before going into labour so I had good chance of having a midwife I already knew and trusted during my labour. I cannot speak highly enough of the wonderful midwife I had on the night and the care I received from all of the team. Unfortunately I had to be transferred into hospital however continued to receive excellent care and support from my community midwife throughout my labour.

Firstly a big congratulations from all of The Halcyon Homebirth Team regarding the birth of your baby!!! We are extremely proud of what we do and review any feedback from our clients regarding their experience with us. I'm sorry you were transferred into hospital but it sounds like you continued to feel well cared for throughout and it was a positive experience for you. Thank you for leaving this lovely review of the Homebirth Team I will be sure to pass it onto the rest of the Team. May I wish you all the best for the future for you and your family and your newest addition. Rachael Smith
