"Fantastic Experience in the waterlily birthing..."

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

I had my son in the new waterlily birthing centre 5/7/2016,the room was lovely and very clean my midwive stayed with us at all times untill my son was born it was nice to have the 1 to 1 care. I had my son in the birthing pool it was very relaxing,helped with the pain and the whole experience made it a special time for me and my partner. All the staff was very helpful and caring and my midwive was lovely,they were very supportive and let me make my own decisions,made sure I had drink and food after i had my son and also helped me breastfeed also the central delivery suite was very busy and I believe there was some emergencies with other women but some how the staff still managed to look after me and my newborn son. So thank you to my midwife and other staff for making the birth of our son such a special time.
