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 email@example.com
It was a busy morning for the team as we welcomed two babies in t the world within an hour!
This experienced mum was supported at home by her named midwife as she birthed her second child.
Today we said goodbye to the lovely family who we’ve had the pleasure of supporting through two pregnancies and through #continuity have been able to facilitate a positive birth experience #BirthIsAmazingWhereverItHappens @RSCH_Maternity
With their little ones keen to join the festivities, in the past few days we’ve supported four families as they welcomed their little ones in to the world and had the privileged of witness two births at #home. We will share their birth announcements, with permission, soon.
In the meantime we can tide you over with our “traditional” team photo from our annual Christmas meal. Many of you may notice a few familiar Surrey Hills faces!
Sadly we’ve goodbye to the lovely Jodie as she embarks on the next stage of her career at St Thomas’s. The Tommy’s mums and babies are lucky to have such a capable and caring midwife joining their unit and she will be greatly missed by the team and her case-loading families alike.
“I just wanted to take a minute to thank the home birth team as a whole for the amazing experience you gave me in the months leading up to, during and after [redacted]’s birth.
Not only were your antenatal visits with my named midwife Kirsty a wonderful opportunity to focus on my baby in an otherwise very busy life, the care I received during labour from Kirsty and Caroline was second to none.
I can only describe home birth as magical and both times it has had a monumental effect on me. So much so that I’ve spent the 4 weeks since [redacted]’s birth, cuddling and feeding him whilst wondering how on earth I could become a midwife myself with 3 small children. I still don’t know the answer but I have begun an access course to make university a possibility because I know if I don’t try I won’t forgive myself.
I’ve seen first hand what a difference a better birth can make to a woman’s physical and mental health at the most important time of their life and I can think of no better job than to be the person to facilitate that, you are all wonderful!
There is no thanks enough for what you all do. If you ever need someone to come to forums or write testimonials I’m sure I wouldn’t be the only one to volunteer but I could sing your praises all day long. Thank you again from my whole family, [redacted] “
This feedback is especially poignant for the team as our own Kirsty was inspired to be a midwife by the care she received when she had her own children!
