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.”

“…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.”

It was all for you

The team had the very great pleasure of supporting this lovely family as they welcomed their second child in to the world.

While the location of their birth changed the essence of their plan remained: a calm, quiet pool birth in the near dark, supported by a midwife they had gotten to know in pregnancy
