"The Spires Delivery Experience"

About: John Radcliffe Hospital

Anything else?

I recently gave birth to my second daughter in The Knowles Suite in The Spires at John Rafcliffe. My experience was absolutely wonderful. My first labor was on a delivery ward at a different hospital. I had no complaints and was treated well and received sufficient care before being transferred onto a ward. My experience at the JR was untouchable. The staff were so caring and friendly, whilst keeping me feeling calm and well looked after. The birth experience was excellent and facilitated me doing what felt most natural and therefore I was able to maintain a strong sense of calm and control throughout. Afterwards we were moved into a private room which was totally relaxing, quite and provided the perfect opportunity to bond with our new baby. I couldn't fault a single moment of the care I received. Rather than feeling exhausted and drained after a night of labor and childbirth, I left feeling euphoric and buzzing from the whole experience. Thank you so much.
