#FridayFeedback

Some lovely feedback sent to PALS by one of our recent clients. We are so grateful for feedback like this that we can use to promote continuity, homebirth and our service and it’s lovely to receive on a personal level.

If you are booked to birth with the Royal Surrey Hospital or live within its catchment and would like to talk through your birth place option including birthing at home with our team get in touch rsch.homebirth.referrals@nhs.net

Ten little toes

Is there anything cuter than baby feet?

This little lady certainly kept the team on their toes and add a little excitement to their New Year’s Eve when she decided to arrive feet and bottom first! Despite the surprise this strong mother birthed her baby beautifully and safely in to the world.

Meet the team January 2020

We are hosting our first homebirth forum of 2020 in a brand new location! We’d like to extend a huge thanks to Well and Good studio, Godalming for kindly hosting us.

If you would like to learn more about #HomeBirth in #Surrey and #Hampshire we recommend that you come along to one of the Surrey Hills Home Birth team’s monthly forums.

The forums, held throughout the catchment,  are a fantastic opportunity to meet the team and local home birthing families. They provide a relaxed, informal setting in which to explore your birth place choices and share #PositiveBirth experiences.

The next forum will be held on:

Thursday 23rd of January

09:30-11:30

A cup of tea and a brownie

“On the morning of my due date I had a few mild cramps which came and went with me hardly even noticing them. I put it down to ‘due date excitement’! I had a sweep booked in with Emily at around midday and I was excited that at the prospect of it possibly starting things off.   I took my toddler to nursery and my husband and I went out for breakfast to enjoy some child-free time before the next baby came along. Emily and a student midwife came over after lunch at around 1:30pm, and after a cup of tea and a lovely chat she did the sweep for me. She said I was already 3cms dilated and my cervix was fully effaced!! What!? My body had been up to all sorts of things without me even knowing! Emily said that we would very likely have our baby today and said to call the team when things ramped up, and advised that we inflate the birthing pool. Having the sweep at home was much more relaxing than at hospital (if you can call a sweep relaxing!?).
