"Lovely experience in the birthing centre"

About: Royal Oldham Hospital

I gave birth to my third child on 5 July 3015 at oldham hospital birthing centre (I had one of my children at birch hill and the other at Fairfield) I telephoned ahead and the midwife was very helpful asking things etc I stayed at home a while longer before setting off when I arrived the midwife was expecting me and took me to yhd room which was lovely with a big birthing pool and twinkling lights very relaxing, they told me about all the options and pain relief etc they filled the pool for me even though I was only on for 15 mins of was not a problem through out the labour the midwife constantly monitored baby and myself after the birth we could stay in the room and bond with baby and help ourselves to drinks and toast in the family room all in all it was a very relaxed amazing experience just as if should be I would likd to thank all the staff who were fantastic informative and friendly
