"Birthing Centre & staff"

About: Northumbria Specialist Emergency Care Hospital

I was due to be induced here on 9/10/16 and as it happens went into labour in the early hours that day. From arriving the staff were fantastic. They kept me calm and talked me through everything so I could make informed choices throughout delivery. I can't thank the staff who initially cared for us then the ones who delivered my son enough. They were so professional and friendly throughout. For the entire of our stay nothing was too much trouble for any of the staff; the care we received was outstanding. Student midwives we wish you all the best for the rest of your training/careers and thank you so very much.
