I gave birth to my 1st baby in jan 2013 at C&W, in the birthing unit. It was a fantastic experience, thanks to the midwife and doula who took great care of us. They were very sweet, caring, supportive, and kept us safe all the time, calling for senior or other staff advice whenever they felt the need. Emotional and medical support during the birth have both gone beyond my expectations. Our birth plan was followed for as long as there was no health concern for the baby. Birthing unit facilities are great, make you feel very private and cosy. Prenatal care had also been very positive. The only tough part was the night on the postnatal ward, could hardly get any sleep, but that's nobody's fault and I was prepared for it. Would definitely recommend this hospital and would go there again for a next birth.
