We had a great birthing experience at the birthing centre.
I was lucky to get my midwife Nicole early, and so had the option of birthing at the centre.
The room was beautiful and clean, the staff were lovely. It is crucial for women like me who don't want to birth at home to have birthing centres like these that provide a non-medical and stress free environment to birth at.
Feeling comfortable and relaxed helps women cope with labour pains and reduces the chance of complications.
Closure of the birthing centre would be a huge loss for families in the Hutt.
