"Fantastic experience at birthing centre"

About: North Middlesex Hospital / Maternity care

I gave birth to my beautiful baby girl on 27/07/2016 in the birthing centre at North mid. Whilst most reviews you read are to criticise this one couldn't be more the opposite. Being my third child I know oh too well that the people who surround you whilst in labour can have a huge impact on how you cope. My midwife, who was accompanied by a student midwife, made me feel so relaxed. At times when I thought I'd lost control the midwife would quickly distract me and reassure me that baby and I were both doing great! One of them were present at all times and the care and service they provided was outstanding. So I guess this review is to thank both the midwife and the student midwife from the bottom of my heart for bringing my baby girl safely into the world and for making my experience the best it could have possibly been. You're job is amazing and I don't think you get enough recognition for all your hard work. So thank you so much! From a very happy mummy and daddy to 3!

Response from North Middlesex Hospital

Thank you for your positive comments. So glad your baby girl is doing well.

It is wonderful that you felt supported and were given extra reassurance just when your need was greatest.

We aim at all times to ensure that the same midwife stays with you throughout delivery, providing continuous support throughout because we know that helps most. I am the head of midwifery, g.slevin@nhs.net and will be sharing with the team.
