"Support and encouragement of the midwife team"

About: Berwick Infirmary / Maternity care

(as the patient),

I had an amazing, calm and relaxed planned home birth thanks to the continued support and encouragement of the fantastic midwife team here in Berwick. My booking midwife Jude delivered my son, which made it such a lovely experience as I felt relaxed and trusted her completely. It was a very fast delivery (as expected) but she didnt seem phased and that gave me the strength to keep it together. She was the midwife to discharge me also, so she was with me all the way. I hope she realises this made the whole experience extra special. I cant thank her and the other Berwick midwives enough.


Response from Berwick Infirmary

Dear Topcatto,

Firstly I’d like to say congratulations on the birth of your new son, such an exciting time for you and your family.

It was so lovely to read your review, I am so pleased that everything went well for you and that you got the care you needed. I’m glad that your midwife, Jude, was able to put you at ease during this time and gave you the strength to carry on. I know Jude will be so proud to read that she had such a positive impact on such a special day for you and your kind words will be greatly appreciated. I will be sure to pass on your review to the Berwick midwives, thank you for taking the time to share it.

Best wishes to you and your little one,


Jessica Mallach – Head of Quality Improvement
