"Wonderful facility that gave us a wonderful birth..."

About: University Hospital Of Hartlepool

I had my second baby here and it was fantastic. I cannot recommend it highly enough. After attending hypnobirthing classes with the midwives I had a water birth here which was a fantastic experience. The facilities are first rate and the midwives were wonderful, helping us to have the kind of birth we wanted and then looking after us fantastically after the birth. My husband could stay overnight and all the midwives made sure our first night and day with our baby was very special. If you want a calm birthing experience with a wide range of facilities; water birth, active birth, music, twinkling lights as well as one to one support from a midwife then this is definitely the place to have your baby. We were the only people in the whole time we were there which was also great! You have to be classed as low risk to attend, but I can also highly recommend the hypnobirthing classes we attended run by one of the midwives. A very big thank you to all who work in this great birthing centre. Privileged to have it in our town!
