Is there anything better than when an old client reaches out with an update. Unfortunately we can’t share the picture of the gorgeous four month old that accompanied this message but we are very please to be able to share this mums feedback on her care from New Years Day!
“I can’t recommend the Surrey hills Homebirth team enough. Throughout every stage of the process they provided the upmost support and professionalism always going above and beyond to ensure I had the most positive pregnancy and birth.
I was supported when I was told I had gestational diabetes at 30 weeks and was accompanied by one of the team when I went to discuss my birthing options with the consultant at the Royal Surrey.
My home birth was the most positive and wonderful experience, I felt completely safe, calm and looked after in the hands of Caroline and Kirsty.
And finally the compassion and care I was shown in the days after the birth was second to none, I was having trouble breastfeeding and my daughter had a tongue tie, within just a few days the team had organised for this to be sorted at the Royal Surrey.
This team of midwives are truly special and I feel very lucky to have had them during my second pregnancy.”
“…My care from the home birth team came quite late into the pregnancy as we had moved to the area when I was 33 weeks, but instantly the team made you feel very welcome. The opportunity to meet you all has made such a huge difference to my mindset and knowing I had the support of you all made me feel at complete ease. It has been first class, you are a fantastic group of women who have turned my experience of birth into such a positive one. You have supported my decisions and fulfilled me with absolute confidence and calmness, and for that I’ll be eternally grateful.”
Some of you may be concerned at all of the recent changes within maternity care due to the Covid-19 pandemic. We are delighted to share some feedback posted to the Royal Surrey Maternity Unit’s Facebook page by one of our clients.
“ I will get round to a proper thank you for the homebirth team and all the midwives at RSCH. Planned a homebirth and the wonderful team were absolutely amazing. We were all excited as a family as our boys age 5 and 6 were also keen to see their baby brother born. Plans changed and I was very upset and anxious but Lucy reassured me and was absolutely amazing. I had reduced movements and went into hospital for monitoring and there I was very emotional but the midwives sat and spoke to me and again Lucy reassured me. I was induced and I felt very supported throughout and extremely safe. I was so blessed to get my water birth that I had always wanted and my midwife was again amazing. I hadn’t met her before but she kept me so calm and really looked after me. She answered all my questions and listened to all my wishes, I felt completely respected and once we had our baby Bertie we were given time to bond. Just a short few hours later we were home and the boys met their baby brother. I can’t thank you enough for bringing our baby Bertie into the world safely and taking such good care of us both. I had such an enjoyable birth and the care afterwards was second to none! We hope you all stay safe and we will be bringing some gifts your way when it is safe to do so.” Surrey Hills Client March 2020
