About: Sunderland Royal Hospital

I had a baby in 2011 and to be quite frank I felt very let down. My first baby and I had no support or guidance. I was very lucky to have my mam by my side! Three month ago I gave birth to my twins in Sunderland and I couldn't fault them! Two Midwifes stayed alday (9-8) with me did checks every half hour. Made me giggle n smile even when I was being a pain ha the support I got was amazing and with there being two they even helped me feed, change one while I did the other! Completely different to when I had my first. Even the doctors explained (dumbified) things for me and they was always by my side! When I was ready the room filled with people for 'just incase' situations which I thought was fab! I felt me and my babies were completely safe in their hands. I honestly can't praise them enough! I walked into the hosp scared and full off what ifs but after an hour they picked me up and supported me and by 5 in the afternoon I naturally gave birth (just want i wanted)
