"Very positive experience!"

About: Sunderland Royal Hospital

What I liked

Very impressed with the staff who delivered our child born by our surrogate mother. The staff were friendly accommodating and understanding in a situation they dont normally face. It was a great experience that we and our daughter will cherish.

What could be improved

Separate accommodation for us with our child (to allow our surrogate mother to rest after the birth) however, we did appreciate that one of us was allowed to stay in the same room overnight to look after our daughter so that our surrogate didnt have to.
