"Burnley birthing centre"

About: Burnley General Hospital

I came here on the 11/08/2015 to deliver my baby - couldnt of asked for a better experience. I heard so many horrible reviews but for me it was great. The midwifes are amazing people and really really supported me through my labour and delivery, even one student midwife was lovely and was doing a great job! I gave birth too my little girl at night not once did they force me of to another ward let me stay in the same room kept a close eye on me and everything I asked them they had given me advice and also looked after me very well.. Would just like too say thankyou to all the lovely midwifes that helped me that night and everyone who works in the labour and delivery ward! You all need a lot more credit for what you do there.. Thankyou :)!
