"Wonderful birthing suite"

About: Northumbria Specialist Emergency Care Hospital

I had my first baby here this week and was blown away by the standard of care at Cramlington birthing suite. The team were so kind and reassuring and the facilities were amazing. I was so grateful to have a private room for 3 days where my partner could stay and my baby,the midwives even showed us how to feed and change the baby and were so patient and respectful. I will never forget this experience.
