"Highly recommended birth centre"

About: The Queen Elizabeth Hospital (King's Lynn)

Had a water birth here in May and the care exceeded my expectations. The midwife that supported me during labor was fantastic, all other staff was very helpful and supportive at all times, had a great post partum care as well, without their support not sure if I would have managed to get hold of breastfeeding as my baby refused to latch for the first 24 hours. There was always someone checking if I was fine throughout the day and night and that was reassuring. Community midwives and general prenatal care were very good as well. Thanks to all the team!
