"Amazing facility that I would recommend to anyone"

About: Burnley General Hospital

What I liked

I could not fault the experience I had at Blackburn birthing centre and I would recommend this facility to anyone. Every single member of staff were fantastic and supportive-no question is too trivial, they are all amazing and completely put me at ease. I had a water birth and would recommend this to anyone, also I was able to stay in 2 nights-there was no pressure for me to go home. I understand that not every women can use this facility but if you can, do. Lots of people tried to put me off as there are no doctors but the experience of the midwives in natural births led for my daughters birth being extremely relaxed and at all times I felt safe and supported.
