You are all incredible and how you work with professionalism, enthusiasm and so much care is so valued and appreciated.

Your attention to detail, obvious passion for your work and the support you gave me throughout both my pregnancies was over and above and I will be forever grateful…”

I am with the Surrey Hills Homebirth Team and recently had my third baby at the Royal Surrey due to homebirths being suspended. Although disappointed not to be able to birth at home due to covid19, I was thrilled when Amy announced on her Facebook live that the Midwife Led Birthing Room has been reopened and I made sure to mention to the midwife on the phone when I was making my way in.

I had the absolute pleasure of both Kirsty’s by my side during the both. The second of which, one of the homebirth midwives, had seen me at a number of appointments antenatally and was my guardian angel in my final week of pregnancy. She turned a bad week into the week I got to birth and meet our beautiful new daughter.

We felt so safe, calm and looked after at the Royal Surrey Maternity Unit. I can’t thank them all enough. I also get to see Kirsty again at our 5 day check which I’m thrilled about and can’t wait to properly thank her in person.

The care I received throughout my pregnancy with my named midwife Anna was also incredible, I loved being cared for by such a wonderful, supportive midwife.”

Hello! Just wanted to say a big thank-you to the homebirth team. I was initially really disappointed when I was told that homebirth would not be an option given the current circumstances.

However, after baby arrived safely on Sunday morning I can say that I had the most lovely experience in the hospital.

I was so pleased that Lucy, who had been looking after me throughout pregnancy was available at the hospital to see me through my birth.

The room was so cosy and peaceful, you would have no idea we were in the middle of a pandemic.

Being able to go home and recover so quickly was lovely, but we didn’t feel rushed out the door at all.

I know a lot of homebirth ladies are feeling anxious about the change in plans but all in all, I felt like I had everything I wanted out of a homebirth but in a hospital setting (and no mess in my carpets!).
