"Thank you for everything"

About: New Forest Birth Centre

Ashurst birthing centre is a truly amazing place, and I am so glad I had the opportunity to have my daughter there. Now 3 months old, my daughter is exclusively breast fed, and I can confidently say that she would not have had any breast milk from me at all without the 'round the clock' support I received from the staff at Ashurst. Due to difficulties with her latch, we just couldn't get things established easily. I spent 5 days at the centre with the help of some very special ladies who were genuinely determined to get me to the point where I could leave the centre 100% happy that I could feed the way I wanted to. I cannot put into words how grateful I will always be for the start you enabled me to give my daughter. Also, thank you for my birthday cake on my last day at the centre :-) that was so kind of you. I will keep everything crossed that I can deliver at Ashurst again with any subsequent babies if I'm lucky enough to have them!!
