"such a beautiful experience"

I chose this centre because I wished to have a natural birth in water and I wished my birth plan to be followed (unlike my previous birth experience in the hospital), and because I wished to have a nice afterwards staying (not be put in a room with other 5 ladies and my privacy be invaded every time by their visitors, like in the hospital). I knew this centre was exactly what I wanted when I had a tour of it, and it didn't let down my expectations. All the staff was very caring, and the midwife that helped me through labour and delivery was very kind, helpful and understanding.

They discussed with me my birth plan and followed it to the letter whenever was possible and I finally had the birth experience I so much desire. The after birth staying was pleasant as well. My husband was able to spend the night with me as the room has a double bed. Having the bathroom in the bedroom meant I could leave baby in her cot in all tranquillity and my privacy was never disrupted. Fabulous all round experience
