I’m so thankful Judi supported my decision of wherever I’d like to birth, and I trusted her completely and felt safe at Te Awakairangi Birthing Centre.
But it was also the days later that set me up for a healthy mind to head home to a family of 5.
After giving birth at the Hutt hospital previously, the following night was spent in a dark, old room, with a small window, and the loud noises of the midwives and nurses outside was awful. I was rattled.
The surrounding rooms at the Birthing Centre are quiet. You are welcomed and well cared for with delicious and nutritious food. And to be able to comfortable have my family visit was so special.
Just look at the doting faces of Lottie’s older siblings.
