"both babies born at birth centre"

About: Burnley General Hospital

I cannot praise burnley hospital enough. I had my two children here in 04/2011 and 02/2013. It was the best experience I ever had. The level of care and kindness from the midwives was amazing. I have been to see another birth centre in a different county as I have moved from Lancashire since. I am due to have baby on 20th March 2016 and really worried about giving birth in Yorkshire. The birth centre in Bradford is smaller and I just don't feel i will get the same level of care I had in Burnley.

I hope I am wrong and Bradford perhaps prove to be just as good. But a small part of me just wants to go back to burnley to have this baby. Anyone who is lucky enough to have baby at burnley you will not be disappointed. The staff are lovely,midwives are very caring and supportive especially when i tried breastfeeding with both babies too.
