"A safe and relaxed experience.."

About: Countess Of Chester Hospital

I had a long normal delivery in the bath pool suite which was absolutely great as it looks brand new. The environment is so relaxing and as my husband has arranged some music as well it was perfect! The midwife that did the delivery was awesome and very experienced. I wouldn't say the same for the previous one that luckily ended their shift before my delivery. They were rather bored and giving me insufficient answers to my questions. I didn't need to see a doctor apart from my antenatal care that was also great. The ward afterwards was very comfortable as I asked and took a single room. The view from the window was rather miserable though and so was part of the room equipment like the window curtain etc. Overall, I would definitely recommend it for a safe and relaxed delivery.
