I would like to thank all the staff in the new Birth Centre, and the Drs in the labour ward. I was admitted to Birth Centre in established labour in early hours of 5 August. My room was lovely, with led candles, a huge pool and birthing sofa. My midwife looked after me so well. I had a traumatic induction with my first baby and they did everything they could to keep this labour non clinical and relaxed. It was a long labour with the pool and gas and air, and unfortunately at 9cm I was in need of more pain relief and was rushed across to labour ward for an epidural. A lot of staff was involved in this transfer and administering the epidural as fast as possible whilst I was distraught in pain. Every single staff member needs to be thanked sincerely for looking after me. I was left to deliver my baby calmly with my midwife, without any Drs. And I was even allowed to be moved back to a private recovery room in the birth centre which made me and my husband very happy.
